Whenever a crime is committed, law enforcement officers are typically the first to arrive on the scene and to interact with victims. As a result, police officers have more contact with crime victims in the immediate aftermath of a crime than any other criminal justice professional. This makes their role critical and puts them in a unique position to meet victims’ needs immediately after the crime has occurred and encourage and facilitate the victim’s participation in the criminal justice system. An officer’s initial response to a victim will have a long-lasting impact on that individual’s experience of the justice system and his or her participation in the investigation and prosecution of the crime.

 

Each year, the week of May 15th is recognized as National Police Week in honor of the law enforcement personnel who provide the first crucial services to crime victims and in celebration of their brave efforts to keep us all safe.

 

The following resources are provided for law enforcement professionals.
