On April 10th, 2014, CVC brought our first ever Crime Victim Rights conference to the Ambassador Banquet & Conference Center.  We hosted over 100 people from the area in a conference that covered a range of topics designed to help raise awareness and fight crime in our community.  CVC would like to thank everyone that attended for the positive reviews and let you know that we cannot wait to host this event again next year!
