Crime Survivors vision is for victims of crime to recover from their experience mentally, physically, emotionally, and financially, by receiving the respect, support, and protection from law enforcement, the judicial system, and the community.
The mission of Crime Survivors is to ensure the public knows victims’ rights and needs and to provide resources, support, and information to empower crime victims to survive and thrive.
Victim Emergency Bags
Victim Emergency Bags are provided to victims / survivors of crimes and will be distributed through Police Departments, Fire Departments, Ambulance and all medical, in addition by non profit organizations assisting victims / survivors of crimes.
Our goal is to develop, print and distribute Victim Resource Guides to each law enforcement vehicle in Los Angeles County and Orange County, California. The Resources Guides will include contact information for all organizations that provide services to crime victims in each county. Law enforcement officers, who are usually the first on the scene of a crime, can then provide the Resource Guide to crime victims at their critical time of need.
Let’s Meet Officer Frank Books
In partnership with author Officer Frank Caruso, Crime Survivors’ goal is to purchase and distribute copies of Let’s Meet Officer Frank to libraries, daycare centers, police departments, and other children’s services centers in Los Angeles and Orange Counties, California. This popular children’s book, with its affirming message, focuses on the human aspects of law enforcement, helping children understand the important, positive role that public service has on their lives. Such awareness can lead to a greater knowledge and respect for fellow citizens, which in turn can help prevent future crime and violence.
