Default Prosecutor's Office Press Release 04-16-18-Victims Rights Weeks Events


Crime Victims’ Rights Week Activities Raise Awareness and over
$600 for Crime Victim Service Organizations

April 7-14, 2018 was observed nationwide as Crime Victims’ Rights Week. This year’s theme was Expand the Circle, Reach all Victims. The Pulaski County Prosecutor’s Office hosted two events during Crime Victims’ Rights Week last week to highlight issues faced by victims of crime and to raise funds to support local organizations supporting victims.

The first event was the 7th Annual Crime Victims’ Rights Week lunch. The event was co-hosted by the Prosecutor’s Office, Kids’ Harbor, Good Samaritan of the Ozarks, and the Pulaski County Rotary Club and was held at Hampton Inn in St. Robert. Bo Hecktor, a victim advocate from Union, Missouri, shared the story of her journey from being a crime victim to now helping others cope with similar experiences.

The second event was the 7th Annual Crime Victims’ Rights Week Benefit Golf Tournament at the St. Robert Municipal Golf Tournament hosted by Prosecuting Attorney Kevin Hillman. The purpose of this event was to have fun playing golf while raising money for organizations that serve victims of crime in Pulaski County. In the past, funds have been distributed to Kids’ Harbor, Genesis House, and the Pulaski County Humane Society. This year, the tournament raised over $600 for these organizations.

“Far too often, the criminal justice system focuses on the criminal and forgets about the victim. The intent of these events is to both raise awareness of the issues victims of crime face and to help support some great organizations in Pulaski County that are assisting victims of crime every day,” said Prosecuting Attorney Kevin Hillman. “I want to thank everyone who came out to support these events and to our wonderful sponsors who helped us raise money to give to some great organizations helping crime victims right here in Pulaski County.”
