In honor of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, different groups in Harker Heights came together to host a Ribbons to Remember ceremony at the police station.
Each person grabbed a colored ribbon representing a different type of violent crime. People then wrote a person’s name on the ribbon to remember those who have lost their lives as a result of a violent crime, to honor surivivors, or to recognize advocates who are committed to serving victims in the community.
The ribbons were then placed outside of the Harker Heights Police Station.
“We all know crime can leave a lasting impression on not only our victims, but their families and their friends. And it’s through this dedication and effort and through these trusted sources that support you, that we are allowed to support all of our victims,” says Police Chief Phil Gadd.
The ribbons will be on display all week long.
