On April, 3, 2018, the Washington County Board of Commissioners joined with communities around the nation in formally recognizing the second week of April as Washington County Crime Victim’s Rights Week. The commissioners invited District Attorney Hermann to address their work session with a presentation on county-wide efforts to assist victims and seek justice. DA Hermann explained the work of our Victim’s Assistance Department, as well as the efforts of our law enforcement and community partners to serve victims and protect our vulnerable populations. He was joined by Chief Deputy DA Kevin Barton, who spoke about four current events impacting crime victim assistance in Washington County, including the formation of a School Safety Task Force and the award of VOCA grant to help child sex trafficking victims.
