Victims of criminal activity are often left to pick up the pieces of there lives after being violated. Crime victim advocates come in many forms and from many parts of our communities, from law enforcement to prosecuting attorney’s and volunteers who help people navigate financial and legal issues. In conjunction with crime victims' rights week, the Montana Attorney General's office honors one or more outstanding victim advocates, from around the state, recognized with a plaque, presented by the attorney general. Office of victim services executive director Matthew Dale tells us where the advocates most usually come from.
