Join the Fairfax County Police Department’s Victim Services Section on Sunday, April 8, 2018 at our new Public Safety Headquarters located at 12099 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax, VA 22305, as we launch the 2018 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, with the 6th Annual 5K Walk and Crime Victim Tribute. For this free event we invite crime victims, survivors, family members, friends, and the community to come out to raise awareness for victims’ rights in Northern Virginia and show their support for all victims of crime. The 2018 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week will be commemorated April 8 to 14, 2018. This year’s theme-Expand the Circle: Reach All Victims. The theme 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 law enforcement, the criminal justice system, and communities can work in tandem to reach all crime victims. Participants are encouraged to arrive at 4:30 p.m. to check in. After check in participants will have the opportunity to listen to the talented music of the Ohio bred blues band, 41 North, while visiting the vendor tables featuring local organizations and service providers who work directly with victims of crime in Northern Virginia. Guest speakers this year include: Julie Carey, NBC4 News, as the Master of Ceremonies, Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney Ray F. Morrogh, Fairfax County Police Chief Edwin C. Roessler Jr., and Carmen Lodato daughter of murder victim, Ruthanne Giamittorio Lodato.
At the conclusion of the walk, please stay as Allan McCullough of Grace Hill Church closes this important event as he pays tribute to all victims of crime with a benediction.
