Prosecutor’s office schedules
‘Crime Survivors’ event

The Crime Victim Rights Unit of the Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office is planning an event on Friday, April 26 aimed at helping those impacted by crime.

“Options, Services and Hope for Crime Survivors” is funded by a federal grant and is free to the public. It will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Velocity Center, 6633 18 Mile Road in Sterling Heights.

Individuals can expect to receive information explaining the criminal justice system and showcasing available support services. Insights will be offered into navigating the legal process as well as accessing resources such as restitution, finding support on the path to healing and other avenues that can help overcome the impact of being a crime victim.

“"It’s not just about pursuing justice; it's about standing with survivors every step of the way,” said Macomb County Prosecutor Peter Lucido.

Highlights include sessions led by representatives of the prosecutor’s office, including a crime victim advocate. Staff members of Turning Point and CareHouse also will take part along with officials from the sheriff’s office and members of the Macomb County judiciary.
