Victim of a crime.
Victim Witness provides counseling and crisis intervention services to victims. Services are provided to victims of crimes through a mobile crisis unit, responding to calls referred by law enforcement agencies. Services are also provided during office hours at the courthouse. They assist victims with emergency support services and act as a liaison between law enforcement agencies, attorneys and victims. They also provide court orientation to victims and their families in regard to court procedures. They assist with restraining orders and completing/submitting an application for the Victim Compensation program. The program may help pay for expenses related to a crime such as: medical/dental treatment, mental health services, income loss, funeral/burial expenses, home/vehicle modifications, home security and loss of support (for dependents when a victim is killed).
