ST. CLOUD — Teens will be gathering at the Becker Community Center today for an event to recognize National Crime Victims’ Rights Week.

Advocates received a $5,000 grant to bring teens together to raise awareness of crime prevention and provide them resources to help with issues they face everyday like bullying, drinking and driving and self defense.

The “Just for Teens 2012″ event will be held from 1:00-5:00 p.m.

Then, on Thursday evening, an “Evening of Remembrance” will be held at the St. Cloud Police Department to inspire people with stories of survival and recovery.  The event is open to the public and will be held from 6:00-9:00 p.m.

Stearns County Victim Assistance Coordinator Sandra Kruse says they want victims to know there are resources available to help them heal and become a crime survivor. Kruse says when you are the victim of a crime, you lose a lot of the sensibilities about the world around you. Victims suffer from remorse, fear, lack of trust and anxiety.  Kruse says they want victims to know there are resources out there which can help.

Kruse says the focus this year is to try to bring about awareness to crime victims who may go unnoticed like burglary and fraud victims.
