Victims of Crime Awareness Week Declared in Saskatchewan

Released on April 20, 2015

April 19-25 has been declared Victims of Crime Awareness Week in Saskatchewan, coinciding with National Victims of Crime Awareness Week.  This year’s theme is “Shaping the Future Together.”

The week is an opportunity to raise awareness about the unique needs of victims of crime and tragedy, as well as the services available for them in their time of crisis.

Victims of Crime Awareness Week also recognizes the good work done by Victims Services staff and volunteers in Saskatchewan.

“Every year I get to meet a number of these tremendous people and every year I’m amazed by their compassion and dedication,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Gordon Wyant said.  “I hope all Victims Services staff and volunteers take a moment this week to reflect on their contribution.  They truly make Saskatchewan a better place to live.”

In 2013-14, the roughly 160 volunteer Victim Support Workers in this province helped nearly 9,000 people in their time of need.  To show the province’s appreciation, Minister Wyant will host a luncheon at the Legislative Building for long-term volunteers who have completed 10, 15 and 20 years of service.

Victims Services programs are spread out across the province and provide a range of services, including support immediately following a crime and throughout the criminal justice process, specialized responses to domestic violence and sexual assault, as well as support for children and other vulnerable victims and witnesses who are required to testify in court.

For information about Victims of Crime Awareness Week, services available for victims, or volunteer opportunities, please contact your local Victim Services program.  You can also call the Victims Services Branch at 306-787-3500 or visit the website at www.justice.gov.sk.ca/victimsservices.
