He was honored for his assistance to victims, outreach to the families of murder victims and efforts to find ways of funding services and financial restoration for crime victims.

Every April, the Office for Victims of Crime helps lead communities throughout the country in their annual observances of National Crime Victims' Rights Week by promoting victims' rights and honoring victims and those who advocate on their behalf. The Office for Victims of Crime is a component of the U.S. Department of Justice.
