The Victim-Witness Assistance Program is a free and vital resource for our community and offers assistance to anyone who has been victimized by or has witnessed a crime. This program provides a variety of services to crime victims, witnesses and their families, including 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 for victims and advocate for the rights of victims and witnesses. Our team of professionals and advocates is committed to providing the support you need to help you navigate through oftentimes complex legal procedures and court processes.
The Victim-Witness Assistance Program is led by Director Cheryl Rogers and staffed by Victim Advocates that assist victims and witnesses of crimes with navingating through the legal process until their case is resolved.
As a witness, you also have a critical role in our ability to prosecute crime, because we can't prosecute criminals and seek justice for victims without the cooperation of witnesses. If you are involved in a case, I 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.
We are dedicated to serving you.
