STATEMENT OF MAYOR MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG ON DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTION COMMISSIONER SCHRIRO RECEIVING DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE NATIONAL CRIME VICTIMS' SERVICE AWARD
Commissioner Dora B. Schriro today received a Department of Justice National Crime Victims’ Service Award for her outstanding efforts on behalf of victims of crime. She was presented with the “Allied Professional Award” which recognizes an individual or individuals from a specific discipline outside the victim assistance field for their service to victims and/or contribution to the victims’ field.
“As the leader of the New York City Department of Correction, not only does Dora ensure that inmates are treated fairly and offered opportunities for growth and post-incarceration success, but she has also taken it as a personal charge to advocate for victims of crime. As Commissioner, she is leading the way in jail systems in ensuring that victims’ voices are heard by instituting a victim services program at the Department of Correction. On behalf of our City’s Boldest, I congratulate her on this well-earned recognition.”
