This week we are doing a special episode highlighting legislation recently passed in Utah that affects victims of crime.
Every April, the Justice Department’s Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) leads communities across the country in observing National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW) to honor crime victims, promote their rights and recognize victim advocates. This year’s observance, the 41st annual commemoration, takes place April 24-30, 2022 with the theme: "Rights, access, equity for all victims" by "helping victims find their justice".
