RESOLUTION NO. 000455

 

Designating April 9-15, 2000, as Crime Victims Rights Week in Kansas City, Missouri.

 

WHEREAS, the year 2000 marks the twentieth anniversary of the commemoration of National Crime Victims Rights Week; and

 

WHEREAS, the victims rights discipline in America has, for nearly three decades, dared to dream of a nation that is free from violence and an America where crime victims are consistently provided supportive services to help them cope with the trauma of crime and victimization; and

 

WHEREAS, while the rate of most crimes continues to decrease, Kansas City residents still experienced approximately 8,578 violent crimes; and

 

WHEREAS, important partnerships have been formed among criminal and juvenile justice agencies, law enforcement, allied professionals and victims services to ensure that crime victims are treated with dignity and respect; and

 

WHEREAS, the new millennium affords us the opportunity to continue to dare to dream of a nation where liberty and justice for all includes each and every person who has been touched by crime; and

 

WHEREAS, our individual and collective efforts reflect the dreams we dare to have of a nation where no crime victim goes unserved and every crime victim is afforded rights, services and fair treatment by the justice system and by society; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby designate the week of April 9-15, 2000, as Crime Victims Rights Week, in Kansas City, Missouri; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Council in testimony thereof and that copies hereof be presented to VictimNet members for their dedication to the improved rights of victims.
