As the year ends, it offers a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the services the Victim Services Branch has offered this year. It is our goal to provide consistent and accessible victim advocacy and education for those impacted by violence in the District of Columbia. We embrace this awesome responsibility and task without pause. Moving into 2014, our commitment remains strong to individuals impacted by crime. Members aim to help victims purposefully address challenges, move obstacles and overcome barriers while navigating the criminal justice system. From all of us at the Victim Services Branch thanks for allowing us to provide such a meaningful service.
