ALBANY, NY - Every April, we honor and remember victims of crime and the journey that crime victim rights advocates have taken in the criminal justice system to restore the balance of justice. If you or someone you know is in need of a Crime Victim Advocate please contact our Crime Victims Unit.

Please join us on Thursday April 14, 2016 at 12 noon for the Ceremony of Remembrance in Academy Park on the corner of Eagle and Elk Street, in downtown Albany, as we honor those who have been impacted by crime.  The District Attorney's Office co-sponsors this event every year to recognize crime victims, survivors, and their families.  We also honor community activists, law enforcement personnel who go above and beyond the call of duty in their response to crime victims, and crime victim advocates who work every day to help victims as they transition to survivors.  This event is open to the public and all are invited.

Here is a list of other events throughout the area this month that also honor and remember victims of crime:
