20140325-VictimsWeekThis year’s theme—30 Years: Restoring the Balance of Justice—presents a perfect opportunity to salute victim advocates and service providers and their long-term commitment to aiding crime victims. As we celebrate three decades of defending victims’ rights, we are reminded of how far we have come—and how much work is yet to be done.

National Crime Victims’ Rights Week will be held April 6–12 in communities throughout the nation. In Washington, DC, the U.S. Department of Justice will kick off the week with OVC’s annual Service Awards Ceremony to honor outstanding individuals and programs that serve victims of crime.

The City of Maricopa Public Safety Departments is pleased to announce the 2nd annual Public Safety Citizens Academy. The 2014 Public Safety Citizens Academy will offer hands-on experience in traffic enforcement, fire simulations, and emergency medical services taught by Maricopa’s own police officers and firefighters.  The academy is now accepting applications from local businesses and members of the community interested in learning the daily roles and responsibilities of the fire and police department. 


The Maricopa Police Department has received reports of a scam where residents are receiving phone MPD Patch 2013 smcalls from a person claiming to be a sheriff's office employee.  Once on the phone the scammer demands payment to clear up an outstanding warrant. Victims are being told they did not show up for required jury duty, and as a result, need to immediately pay a fine via a pre-paid credit card transaction or face suspension of their driver’s license. The calls originate from a local area code within Maricopa County.
