A West Deptford woman was recognized for her efforts in the fight for victims rights on Wednesday.

Barbara Carter received the Endurance Award on Wednesday at the R.J. Hughes Justice Complex in Trenton.

The award honors Victim-Witness Office Coordinators and staff who consistently set the standards for excellence in going above and beyond to assist the victim and the prosecuting team. It was part of the first-ever Office of Attorney General Excellence Awards for Victims’ Justice as part of Crime Victims’ Rights Week.

Gloucester County Prosecutor Sean Dalton nominated Carter.

“When Victim/Witness Units were established in all counties in New Jersey in 1985, Gloucester County’s consisted of Barb and a clerical assistant.  Under her guidance, the staff grew to eight, with advocates specializing in: sexual assault and child abuse; juvenile court; domestic violence in family and municipal courts; and homicide,” Dalton wrote in nominating Carter. “She has helped several victims relocate their homes away from dangerous crime scenes. She arranges for Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets and children’s gifts for several families each year, and gives food vouchers for those severely disadvantaged.” 

Carter is a victim advocate in the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office.
