National Crime Victim’s Rights Week

4/20/22 @ 11:45 a.m. – National Crime Victim’s Rights Week is recognized annually across the country to highlight the important voices of crime survivors and the countless service providers and first responders who work tirelessly to support them.

2022 marks the 40th Anniversary of National Crime Victim’s Rights Week and as such, the Board of County Commissioners feels it is important to recognize the efforts of our local Crime Victim’s Advocate. The Sheriff has employed a Crime Victim’s Advocate since 2000. The person serving in that position currently is Nassau County resident, Brittany Reynolds.

Brittany attended today’s County Commission meeting to accept Resolution No. 2022-034 proclaiming April 18 – April 24, 2022 as National Crime Victim’s Rights Week in Nassau County, Florida.

Being a victim of crime and navigating the criminal justice system can be a frightening and confusing experience. However, the Crime Victim’s Advocate is here to assist victims by providing compassion, emotional support, guidance through the court process and assistance in finding much needed resources. We commend Brittany for all she does to support victims and survivors in the aftermath of crime.
