Crime Victim Assistance
The Criminal Division helps people who are crime victims or witnesses through the criminal justice process. Prosecutor support staff (including paralegals, assistant paralegals and Criminal Division paralegal interns and volunteers) perform victim and witness contact about the incident. In the matter of a crime involving domestic violence, a victim's advocate is assigned for the victim and they communicate with the victim.
Anyone contacting a victim or witness is obligated to clearly identify which agency he or she represents.
