Nashville, Tennessee --- For the fifth consecutive year, the Tennessee Board of Parole is observing National Crime Victims’ Rights Week with a series of tree plantings in cities across the state. Victim advocates in local communities are being honored at each ceremony for their work with victims of crime.
This year, the Board is adding the Department of Correction as a partner in these events. “We believe in strong collaborations, and TDOC is our closest collaborator,” said Board Chairman Charles Traughber. “We are allied in our missions toward safe communities, and we are allied in our concerns for victims."
