VICTIM SUPPORT TEAM

The Seattle Police Department's Domestic Violence Victim Support Team (VST) program is a unique partnership between community members and police to address and prevent domestic violence. The program is designed to address the gap in services to domestic violence victims that exists between the time patrol officers respond to a 9-1-1 call and take a report, to the time advocates, detectives and prosecutors make contact with the victim for follow up.

OUR MISSION

The mission of the Victim Support Team is to create a rewarding and sustainable partnership between community volunteers and police, to address and prevent domestic violence. The Victim Support Team is committed to providing comprehensive, culturally relevant, and supportive services to domestic violence victims and their children.
