Earlier this month, the Cook County’s State’s Attorney’s office launched a community awareness campaign, including a public service annnouncement to educate and empower citizens throughout the county about victim rights and services.

The ceremony was held yesterday at the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police headquarters at 1412 W. Washington, Chicago.
