Victim Service Volunteer Program
Volunteers are accepted to serve as Victim Advocates in all areas of the State Attorney’s Office. This includes:
- Telephone contact during office hours with victims of all crimes to keep them informed of the status of their case and to obtain their input regarding the case.
- Special services to victims of domestic violence.
- Assistance in filing for crimes compensation
- Criminal Justice Support for victims including court accompaniment, attending depositions, and any other hearing required of victims.
- Assistance identifying community services available for victims and providing information to the victim.
- Compassionate, non-directive listening and support to victims.
The State Attorney’s Office respects victims and assures them that anyone who assists them will be trained, and supervised as a professional staff member of the Victim Service Program. Training is provided by Program staff and representatives of agencies who work with the State Attorney’s Office.
Imagine someone saying to you:
“I could not have done it without you! Thank you!”
