Mollie Halpern: An estimated 21 million Americans are victims of crime each year. They’re the ones who suffer as a result of terrorism and other violent crimes the FBI investigates. The FBI commemorates victims every day, and especially during the annual National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, April 10 -16.
Kathryn Turman: What’s helpful is for people to stop and think and remember—for almost every crime there is a victim, there’s a family.
Halpern: I’m Mollie Halpern of the Bureau, and this is “FBI, This Week.” The FBI fights crime, and it also provides support to help victims cope with those crimes. According to a recent federal report, the Bureau works with more crime victims than all other federal investigative agencies combined. Kathryn Turman is the program director for the FBI’s Office for Victim Assistance.
Turman: We can’t change what’s happened to them, but what we can do is make sure that they get the rights and the services that they’re entitled to.
Halpern: To learn more about the Bureau’s Office for Victim Assistance, visit FBI.gov.
