Williamson County will celebrate National Crime Victims’ Rights Week April 18 to 24, 2010, with a ceremony at the Williamson County Courthouse, 710 S. Main Street, Georgetown, in the District Courtroom, at 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 21, 2010.  The theme this year is “Crime Victims’ Rights: Fairness. Dignity. Respect.”  The event is open to the public. Refreshments will be served courtesy of Mimi’s Café.
On Tuesday, March 30, 2010, the Commissioners Court approved a resolution recognizing Crime Victims’ Rights Week and reaffirming Williamson County’s commitment to respect and enforce victim’s rights and address their needs. They also expressed their appreciation for those victims and crime survivors who have turned personal tragedy into a motivating force to improve the response to victims of crime.
Last year, more than 2,000 citizens were assisted through Williamson County Victims Services, a division of the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office. Victim service programs offer a wide range of services that include crisis intervention, counseling, safety planning and advocacy throughout the criminal or juvenile justice system. Anyone who is victimized by crime can receive information about their rights and the many services available to assist them by calling Victims’ Services with the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office at 943-1373. The following agencies also have victim services liaisons:
Williamson County District Attorney: Irene Odom 943-1234
