Since 1981, National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW) serves as a time to renew our commitment to serving all victims of crime, to acknowledge the achievements in victim services and allied professions, to honor those who have gone above and beyond in their service to others, and to remember crime victims and survivors. The CREVAA (Collaborative Response to Elder and Vulnerable Adult Abuse) Advocates Lisha Wiley and Makenzie Fowler along with District Attorney General Bryant Dunaway and Executive Administrative Assistant Angel Sircy work diligently to help victims of crime every day.
Every April, the Office for Victims of Crime leads communities throughout the country in their annual observances of NCVRW. The 40th anniversary of NCVRW will be observed during the week of April 18–24.
Office for Victims of Crime Director Hart selected a theme — Support Victims. Build Trust. Engage Communities. — emphasizing the importance of leveraging community support to help victims of crime.
Our CREVAA Advocates serve elderly and vulnerable adult victims of crime in the 14 counties of the Upper Cumberland. They serve five judicial districts, working with the various District Attorney Offices, Adult Protective Services, and local law enforcement agencies to ensure that victims receive the emergency services and stabilization that they are in need of.
