BIPARTISAN BILL TO PROTECT VICTIMS OF CRIME PASSES NEW HAMPSHIRE HOUSE

CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE –April 8, the New Hampshire House passed a bipartisan bill aimed at protecting crime victims, HB 546. Following the vote, Representative Amanda Bouldin (D-Manchester) released the following statement:


“Not only is it the duty of law enforcement to uphold the law, but it is the duty of law enforcement to be an advocate for victims of crime. New Hampshire police have broadcast their frustration over the inability to obtain the cooperation of some victims of violent crimes in order to bring perpetrators to justice. Because victims may have any myriad of reasons to fear coming forward about their assailant’s identity, HB 546 aims to eliminate those barriers and establish a cooperative relationship between police and victims of crime and keep truly dangerous people off the street. I am proud and grateful for the bipartisan support for this commonsense legislation.”
