WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback and Attorney General Derek Schmidt are hosting a two-day conference later this week on crime victims’ rights.

The conference begins Thursday at the Hyatt Regency hotel and convention center in downtown Wichita. Brownback is scheduled to make opening remarks Thursday morning.

Schmidt plans to present awards during a Friday luncheon to recognize professionals and volunteers who provide services to crime victims.

It will be the 18th annual state conference on crime victims’ rights, and the attorney general’s office says this year’s focus is the need for community leaders and groups to provide services and support to victims. The conference includes more than 30 workshops.
