18A:71B-54. Findings, declarations about crime victims
2.The Legislature finds and declares that:
a.Ten percent of the crimes reported in the State are violent crimes, and murder accounts for at least one percent of all violent crimes committed. Victims of violent crimes and their families often become crime statistics with no honorable mention.
b.It is appropriate to pay tribute to those who have suffered from violent crime through the recognition of National Crime Victims' Rights Week. The State should recognize these individuals through the establishment of a special fund which will allow the children of crime victims the opportunity to attend college through the commemoration of the death of Tony Pompelio, a crime victim, by establishing the Tony Pompelio Commemorative Scholarship Fund.
