Thanks to the efforts of these individuals, more victims are receiving the care they deserve and accessing tools to empower them as they recover. This week, we express our appreciation for those who support crime victims, and we reaffirm our strong commitment to reducing the trauma of crime for victims and their loved ones. My Administration remains focused on helping victims of crime recover from and overcome the physical, emotional, and financial suffering they have endured. As one of my first acts as President, I established the Victims of Immigrant Crime Engagement (VOICE) Office within the Department of Homeland Security to serve the needs of Angel Families who suffered as a result of crimes committed by illegal immigrants. Additionally, for Fiscal Year 2018 alone, the Department of Justice’s Office for Victims of Crime awarded more than $2.3 billion in grants for victim assistance and compensation programs. These dollars financed services for more than 6 million victims, provided millions in compensation, and did not cost taxpayers a dime. It all came from the fines and penalties paid by convicted Federal offenders. As part of our support for crime victims, we are also providing significant funding to operate local domestic violence shelters, elder abuse programs, child advocacy centers, rape crisis centers, homicide support groups, and other victim assistance programs across the United States. Through programs like these, victims of crimes are better able to begin the healing process and work to rebuild their lives. lotter on DSKBCFDHB2PROD with FR_PRESDOCS Our Nation’s law enforcement officers also provide critical support to crime victims. These brave men and women serve as the first line of response for many victims of crime, and my Administration remains committed to empowering them as they fulfill this and all of their duties to their communities. To further enhance public safety and the oversight of justice, my Administration established the Presidential Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice. This commission, the first of its kind in more than 50 years, is set up to study the biggest threats to law and order and help our law enforcement officers increase the safety of our Nation. By providing more resources to first responders to carry out their mission, we are more effectively assisting crime victims and empowering law enforcement to prevent crimes before they occur. This week, we are reminded that in many cases crime victims experience long-lasting trauma and need assistance. We must continue to champion efforts to expand their access to quality services and to fight alongside them to secure the justice they deserve. My Administration will never stop working to achieve this goal, and we will always strive toward a better future for all Americans free from crime. NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J.

National Crime Victims' Rights Week, 2020

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                In 1981, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed the first 
                National Crime Victims' Rights Week to acknowledge the 
                abuse and trauma that victims of crimes often 
                experience, and to recognize the tireless work of 
                dedicated advocates who have taken up the cause of 
                supporting crime victims across our country. Thanks to 
                the efforts of these individuals, more victims are 
                receiving the care they deserve and accessing tools to 
                empower them as they recover. This week, we express our 
                appreciation for those who support crime victims, and 
                we reaffirm our strong commitment to reducing the 
                trauma of crime for victims and their loved ones.

                My Administration remains focused on helping victims of 
                crime recover from and overcome the physical, 
                emotional, and financial suffering they have endured. 
                As one of my first acts as President, I established the 
                Victims of Immigrant Crime Engagement (VOICE) Office 
                within the Department of Homeland Security to serve the 
                needs of Angel Families who suffered as a result of 
                crimes committed by illegal immigrants. Additionally, 
                for Fiscal Year 2018 alone, the Department of Justice's 
                Office for Victims of Crime awarded more than $2.3 
                billion in grants for victim assistance and 
                compensation programs. These dollars financed services 
                for more than 6 million victims, provided millions in 
                compensation, and did not cost taxpayers a dime. It all 
                came from the fines and penalties paid by convicted 
                Federal offenders. As part of our support for crime 
                victims, we are also providing significant funding to 
                operate local domestic violence shelters, elder abuse 
                programs, child advocacy centers, rape crisis centers, 
                homicide support groups, and other victim assistance 
                programs across the United States. Through programs 
                like these, victims of crimes are better able to begin 
                the healing process and work to rebuild their lives.

                Our Nation's law enforcement officers also provide 
                critical support to crime victims. These brave men and 
                women serve as the first line of response for many 
                victims of crime, and my Administration remains 
                committed to empowering them as they fulfill this and 
                all of their duties to their communities. To further 
                enhance public safety and the oversight of justice, my 
                Administration established the Presidential Commission 
                on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice. 
                This commission, the first of its kind in more than 50 
                years, is set up to study the biggest threats to law 
                and order and help our law enforcement officers 
                increase the safety of our Nation. By providing more 
                resources to first responders to carry out their 
                mission, we are more effectively assisting crime 
                victims and empowering law enforcement to prevent 
                crimes before they occur.

                This week, we are reminded that in many cases crime 
                victims experience long-lasting trauma and need 
                assistance. We must continue to champion efforts to 
                expand their access to quality services and to fight 
                alongside them to secure the justice they deserve. My 
                Administration will never stop working to achieve this 
                goal, and we will always strive toward a better future 
                for all Americans free from crime.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution

[[Page 22944]]

                and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim 
                April 19 through April 25, 2020, as National Crime 
                Victims' Rights Week. I urge all Americans, families, 
                law enforcement, community and faith-based 
                organizations, and private organizations to work 
                together to support victims of crime and protect their 
                rights.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                seventeenth day of April, in the year of our Lord two 
                thousand twenty, and of the Independence of the United 
                States of America the two hundred and forty-fourth.
