The Victim-Witness Assistance Program is a free and vital resource for our community. This program provides a variety of services to crime victims, witnesses and their families. These free services include case information, court orientation and preparation, referrals to community agencies and assistance with applying for financial compensation.
As a Division of the District Attorney's Office, the Victim-Witness Program plays a major role in our ability to prosecute crime, seek justice and advocate for the rights of victims and witnesses. Our team of advocates is committed to providing the support you need to help you navigate through serious, complex legal procedures and court processes.
A team of dedicated Victim Advocates assist victims and witnesses of crimes with navigating through the legal process until their case is resolved.
As a witness and/or victim, you also have a critical role in our ability to prosecute crime. Prosecutors can’t hold law breakers accountable without the cooperation of victims, witnesses and the community. If you are involved in a case, we encourage you to contact our Victim-Witness Assistance Program to discuss your needs and concerns.
The Victim-Witness Assistance Program does not discriminate against individuals or groups on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex or disability. If you believe you have been the target of discrimination, you have the right to file a civil rights complaint. Information on how to file a civil rights complaint can be found on the Office of Justice Programs website.
