Our Mission: To assist Victims through the criminal justice process in an informative, supportive manner that enables them to be involved and provide input into the process.
Our Goal: To support the rights accorded victims while helping them move from being victims to becoming survivors.
The Victim/Witness Division supports and assists crime victims while their related cases are being prosecuted. Victim/Witness Staff provide information on the criminal justice system, court case updates, referrals and court accompaniment, as well as emotional support. Victims of violent personal injury crimes may be eligible to have certain expenses paid by the Crime Victim Compensation Fund which is administered by Victim/Witness staff. Additional services provided by the division include witness coordination, the preparation of documentation to allow the court to order defendant(s) to reimburse victims for any economic losses that are a direct result of the crime (restitution). The division also administers the Victim and Law Enforcement Fund (V.A.L.E.) which provide supplemental funding to organizations and agencies who provide additional victim services.
