SALT LAKE CITY -- Salt Lake City police officers were out Friday to rally for victims' rights. The honk and wave wrapped up a week of activities for National Crime Victims Rights Week.

Members of the police department say they want to raise people's awareness of the special rights crime victims have.

"There's special rights for children of crime or sex assault victims; so there are a lot of rights that are pretty new, and we want to make sure the public knows about it," said Wendy Isom, with Salt Lake City's Victims Advocate Program.

Other activities for National Crime Victims Rights Week included a candle light vigil, a mayoral proclamation and a quilt project.
