National Crime Victims' Rights Week in Downtown Laurel

HATTIESBURG, MISS. - On Thursday, April 12th at 8:30am, crime victims lined up by the dozens right in front of City Hall in downtown Laurel, as Mayor Johnny Magee presented a proclamation recognizing "National Crime Victims’ Rights Week" to members of Jones County and City of Laurel law enforcement, along with other agencies who seek to minister to victims and survivors in the aftermath of violent crime. “Behind every crime that happens there is a victim, and this proclamation is to recognize and bring awareness to the victims of violent crime,” McGee said. “People live with it every day. There are people who are paralyzed, there are people who have died, simply because they’ve been a victim of crime… we recognize there are victims and we want to do our best to assist the victims.”
