State Attorney Phil Archer recognized six outstanding professionals for their service and dedication to victims of crime during his annual awards ceremony for the 2015 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week.

The awards came during a breakfast at the Suntree Tower in Melbourne, hosted by Archer and his staff to honor all those that serve victims every day in Brevard County.

The theme for this year was “Engaging Communities: Empowering Victims.”

The winners are chosen from nominations submitted by public and private agencies throughout Brevard County.

Archer noted in his remarks that every nomination this year spoke about community collaboration, the importance of community partnerships, teamwork and empowering victims.

“We know that by engaging with our community partners to provide resources for our victims, we also empower our victims,” said Archer. “Together, we make a difference.”

Among those recognized were Officer of the Year Officer Kimberly Weeks, West Melbourne Police Department; Assistant State Attorney Laura Moody, the Norman R. Wolfinger Attorney of the Year; Outstanding Service Award to Diane Scott, Director of Communications at Childrens Advocacy Center; Outstanding Service Award to Denise Williams, Sexual Assault Victim Services; and the very special Kathy L. King Victim Advocate award to Janet Pearson, State Attorney’s Office and to Cynthia Harris, the Women’s Center in Titusville.
