People with disabilities are 3x more likely to be a victim of crime.

Each year, 3 million Americans are victims of violence.

1 in 5 women will be raped in her lifetime.

Be the difference. We all have a role in stopping victimization and sexual violence.


Each year, the Office for Victims’ of Crime helps lead communities throughout the country in the observance of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week.  This year, on Cape Cod, Independence House and the Cape and Islands District Attorney’s Office will lead our community in victim service and criminal justice response that assists all victims of crime, and to express our appreciation for community members, victim service providers, and criminal justice professionals who are committed to improving our response to all victims of crime so that they may find relevant assistance, support, justice, and peace.
