Raising awareness for victims of crime is the focus of a week-long campaign by the Canadian government. “We All Have a Role” is the theme of the eighth annual National Victims of Crime Awareness Week, which runs from April 21 – 27.
Durham Regional Police partners with Victim Services of Durham Region, a community-based, not-for-profit, program funded by the Ministry of the Attorney General, Ontario Victim Services, to provide emotional support and practical assistance to victims of crime and tragic circumstance.
Being a victim of crime can have many different effects on people: financial, emotional and physical. Jade Harper, Executive Director of Victim Services of Durham Region, reached out to local media outlets to help raise awareness for citizens of Durham so they know there are resources available to them. Listen to her radio spot now.
DRP would like to encourage anyone who has been a victim of a crime, or if you know someone who has, to please contact Victim Services of Durham Region at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance and/or advice.
