National Crime Victims’ Rights Week is celebrated April 8 to 14, 2018. This year’s theme is Expand the Circle: Reach All Victims, emphasizes the importance of inclusion in victim services and addresses—
• how the crime victims field can better ensure that every crime victim has access to services and support; and
• how professionals, organizations, and communities can work in tandem to reach all victims.
Williamson County will hold the 2018 Crime Victims’ Rights Week ceremony on Wednesday, April 11, 2018, to recognize and honor extraordinary individuals who demonstrate outstanding service to victims of crime and victim services.
The ceremony will start at 10 a.m. in the Historic 26th District Courtroom located on the second floor of the Historic County Courthouse, 710 Main Street, Georgetown, Texas, 78626. The event is free and open to the public.
The ceremony will conclude with a Balloon Release on the East Side of the Courthouse Lawn as a tribute of Hope and Support for the 1408 victims of violent crime in Williamson County in 2017. Law Enforcement, EMS and Fire Dept. will be parked around the courthouse and will run their lights/sirens briefly during the balloon release in support of Victims.
