Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - This week is National Crime Victim Rights week and Cheyenne Police are dedicating the week to Cheyenne's crime victims and its survivors.
This year marks 30 years of victim services offered by Cheyenne Police.
They are networking in the community this week, letting people know about their services and fighting to bring crime down in Cheyenne.
"Focus on what still needs to be done in terms of human trafficking and elder abuse and people with disabilities, victims with disabilities. So we want to still highlight that as well," said Leslie Burch, Victims Assistant Coordinator with Cheyenne Police.
Victims Services has a traveling wall to tell the story of local victims and survivors. Some survivors have put their story on the wall and how they have helped them.
"A lot of us in the organizations have worked one on one with their families and have remained close to them and so we just want to highlight that local part of it, especially since Crystal Town is another family that we've worked very closely to and her family will be out networking as well, with us," Burch said.
Victims Assistance is hoping more people will come to them for help when they are victims of any crime from domestic violence to property crime.
"Letting people in the community know that we're here may help that and they may want to report more," Burch said.
To get help from Victims Assistance you can call 307-637-6507.
