About the Victim Advocate Program

Our primary goal is to alleviate the psychological and emotional trauma incurred as a result of violent crime. Addressing these needs will, in turn, increase victim and witness well-being and willingness to cooperate with law enforcement in the investigation and prosecution of crimes. The Victim Advocate Program provides on-call support to victims of violent crime. Specialized assistance is available at the crime scene and throughout the investigative phase and criminal justice process, including the following:

  • On-scene Crisis Intervention
  • Emotional support to survivors and victim’s family members
  • Referrals to support groups, shelter and housing facilities, agencies that provide medical and mental health services, and financial support
  • Assistance with filing for Crime Victims’ Compensation
  • Education on the criminal justice system, including obtaining protective orders and court procedures
  • Assistance with filing a Victim Impact Statement
  • Assistance in the recovery of property
  • Personal safety planning
