The Harford County State's Attorney's office is participating in National Crime Victims' Rights Week April 22-28 and will feature a program about presenting crime this Monday.
This annual observance seeks to increase public awareness and knowledge among crime victims and survivors about the wide range of rights and services available to people who have been victimized by crime, according to State's Attorney Joseph Cassilly.
The theme for the 2012 National Crime Victims' Rights Week is "Extending the Vision, Reaching Every Victim."
In recognition of the 2012 National Crime Victims' Rights Week, Cassilly will present "Preventing Crime - Protecting Yourself, Your Money and Your Property" Monday, April 23, at 12:30 p.m. at the McFaul Senior Activity Center on West MacPhail Road next to the MVA in Bel Air.
Subjects to be discussed by the state's attorney include financial crimes, telephone scams, door-to-door scams, health care fraud, identity theft, power of attorney abuse, property crimes and physical crimes.
Time will be allotted for questions and answers following the presentation.
