Everyday people perform routine tasks. Most people never imagine that while performing these functions, a property crime is committed every 3 second, a theft occurs every 4.5 seconds, a burglary every 14.7 second, a violent crime every 22.1 seconds, a robbery every 1.2 minutes, a forcible rape every 5.5 minutes, and a murder every 32.4 minutes. When a person becomes a victim of a crime, they often are in shock and do not know where to go for help.
National Victims’ Rights Week begins Sunday and marks the 25th anniversary of the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA). For the past 12 years, the St. Croix County Victim/Witness Assistance Program has received a VOCA grant to fund its Legal Advocate Program.

In the 28 years since that time, there have been many advances made to assure that victims are treated with respect and dignity. Every state and the federal government have established statutory rights for victims and, to date, 33 states, including Wisconsin, have passed constitutional amendments that protect those rights.
