This week is National Crime Victims’ Week. Today, a special event was held at the Ector County Courthouse to highlight this issue. Many agencies and local leaders, including Odessa Police Chief Michael Gerke, attended.
Speakers emphasized the importance of fighting for victims' rights and being there for victims in times of need.
The Odessa Police Department works hard to combat family violence in our city. We work closely with local nonprofit organizations to aid victims of domestic abuse.
