he Upper Fraser Valley RCMP recognizes victims and witnesses of crime and trauma, and commends our Victim Services Personnel during the 7th annual National Victims of Crime Awareness Week, running April 22 to 28, 2012.

 

The theme for this year’s National Victims of Crime Awareness Week is “Moving Forward”. This theme underlines the good work that individuals, communities, agencies and governments are doing in moving Victim Services forward as the professional service it has become.
 

Within the RCMP, Victim Services has become an integral component of the policing services. We would like to thank our Victim Services staff and volunteers for their dedication and commitment to the RCMP, and for their outstanding service provision to victims and witnesses of crime and trauma.

In the Upper Fraser Valley, there are 12 hard working Victim Services volunteers. "The services of this group of people are invaluable not only to the public but also to the members on the road," said Cst. Tracy Wolbeck. "It provides us with the support we need to look after the operational side of an investigation and know that the victims and witnesses are in the best possible hands." The Upper Fraser Valley RCMP Victim Services unit were involved in over 400 files last year.

We would also like to thank our members, civilian staff and volunteers, along with all individuals and agencies in our community who assist in supporting victims of crime, and in moving victim issues forward. The work these individuals and agencies do to support victims of crime directly contributes to the RCMP’s ultimate goal of keeping our communities across BC safe and secure and we thank you for your dedication and commitment.
