Knoxville (WVLT) -- All the police activity around Knoxville Center Mall on Saturday afternoon wasn't anything to worry about.
The Family Crisis unit of the Knox County Sheriff's Office spent Saturday in the mall's parking lot to commemorate National Crime Victim Week.
On hand were members of the SWAT team, Aviation unit, K-9 team, and even the bomb robot, all to help us never forget the lost.
"A lot of times in the prosecution of criminals, we just forget about the victims," said Knox County Sheriff J.J. Jones. "We've dedicated this to them, and we want to make sure that people don't forget about them."
Other participants in the event included the Knoxville Police Department, YWCA, Safe Haven and the Family Justice Center.
