SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY – In commemoration of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW), April 24–30, 2022, San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office is hosting its seventh annual National Crime Victims’ Rights Week Memorials. Our memorials are held to raise awareness about crime victims’ issues and rights and introduce the community to the important resources and services available.

Crime victims are our family, friends, neighbors, and community members. While we can never truly understand the depth of their trauma and the impact on their lives, we can ensure that equitable, inclusive, culturally appropriate, and gender- responsive services are available to help them. By enforcing victims’ rights, expanding access to services, and upholding principles of equity and inclusivity for all, we can enable crime victims to find the justice they seek, in whatever form that might take.

The San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office will commemorate the advancement of victims’ rights and highlight issues surrounding victimization by hosting a West Valley Memorial on Monday, April 25, 2022 at Central Park in the City of Rancho Cucamonga, from 5:30pm-6:30pm. Our Office will also be hosting a High Desert Memorial Wednesday April 27,2022 at the Civic Center Park Amphitheater in the Town of Apple Valley from 12:00pm-1:00pm.

The Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) leads communities throughout the country in their annual observances of NCVRW by promoting victims’ rights and honoring crime victims and those who advocate on their behalf. This year’s theme—Rights, access, equity, for all victims— spotlights victim service organizations’ best practices to reach all victims and help them forge new healing pathways.

OVC and the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office encourage widespread, but safe, participation in the week’s virtual and in-person events. OVC will host the annual National Crime Victims’ Service Awards Ceremony in Washington, DC, to honor outstanding individuals and programs that serve victims of crime.
