Crime Victims' Candlelight Vigil at Calanan Park on April 13

Crime Victims' Candlelight Vigil at Calanan Park on April 13

The ceremony, which is co-hosted by the Wisconsin Crime Victims Council and the Department of Justice Office of Crime Victim Services, recognizes the importance of the state's crime victim rights in Wisconsin's constitution and statutes. She's been a survivor for 8 years now and has since been helping people by working in therapy and sharing her own experiences, something she says she wouldn't have been able to do without having people in her corner.

"Tony, we miss you, and we thank you for inspiring us with your commitment to these ideals". Those advocates were also recognized for their work during the ceremony.

"Ms. Frost's untimely death is not only a devastating loss for us in the Office for Victims of Crime, but also for the victim services community which she helped to transform by spending most of her professional life advocating on behalf of victims", said Director of the Office for Victims of Crime Darlene Hutchinson. "From our receptionist and investigators to our victims' advocates and prosecutors, our office is committed to ensuring that every victim and survivor of a crime is treated with respect, made aware of each step of the process and provided a voice in the courtroom". The tree represents the strong foundation of support that exists for victims and their families in Orange County.

"The biggest thing it takes is support". Many will need ongoing care and resources. Boxes were set up at county offices and at local police departments.

"It gives us the opportunity to reflect on those who are impacted by crime", said District Attorney Joel Smith.

The theme at an event on the Downtown Mall on Friday was, "Do you know your rights as a crime victim?" He said the new partnership with the shelter, which he hopes will continue to grow, is in line with that mission.

"They really are starting from scratch".

"We like to hold the luncheon in their loved ones' honor and connect with our victims' families", Williams said.
