The Department of Corrections and community partners hosted an event celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Victims of Crime Act.
This year, April 6-12 was designated as National Crime Victims’ Rights Week and marked 30 years since the passage of the Victims of Crime Act in 1984, an important milestone in the rights of crime victims. This year’s theme, “30 Years: Restoring the Balance of Justice,” reminds us that in the not-too-distant past, crime victims were routinely excluded from the criminal justice process. Wisconsin has a proud history of advancing and enforcing crime victims’ rights. The event took place at the Mary Ryan Boys and Girls Club, 3000 N. Sherman Blvd., Milwaukee on April 10.
