The Juneau County Office of Victim and Witness Services will take part in this year’s Crime Victims’ Rights Week. Victim/Witness Coordinator Michele Mehne says, “The Juneau County Office will participate in the statewide effort, known as the ‘Pinwheel Project’ the week of April 21st- 27th, 2013. All 100-inwheels will be set up in Mauston at the ‘Field of Dreams’ at the corner of State and Union Streets Saturday, April 20th, 2013 at Noon. Mehne says, “My office is available for any victim of any crime in Juneau County to ensure that each victim is informed, present, heard, and treated with fairness, respect, and dignity throughout the criminal court process.” In addition to the pinwheels, the Victim/Witness Office has also received bookmarks for distribution to help ensure victims know where to seek assistance. This new statewide effort, organized by the Department of Justice-Office of Crime Victim Services, is designed to raise awareness of the impact of violence on children. It is being funded by a grant awarded to the Wisconsin Department of Justice Office of Crime Victim Services.
