A total of 11 bricks will be dedicated this year.
One of those bricks will be from the Springfield Police Department in honor of its Crime Analysis Unit.
“Our Crime Analysis Unit is a group of unsung heroes,” says Police Chief Paul Williams in a news statement. “They analyze and disseminate valuable information on thousands of cases that ultimately impact countless victims and their families.”
Other agencies participating in the ceremony include:
Christian County Prosecutor’s Office, Greene County Sheriff’s Office, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, Greene County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, The Victim Center, Harmony House, Child Advocacy Center and the Springfield DWI Task Force.
The event is part of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week.
