Services Overview
As a crime victim or a witness of a crime, you have certain rights in the criminal justice system. There are many services available to you so that your participation in the criminal justice system will be less stressful and more informed. Basically, this is accomplished through the State and County Offices of Victim-Witness Advocacy. In each of the 21 county prosecutors' offices there is a County Office of Victim-Witness Advocacy.

These offices are staffed with trained professionals who will assist and accompany you through every step of the criminal justice system from the initial phases of arrest and prosecution to the final outcome of your case including the parole process. They are also prepared to help you obtain other services to assist you during this time of personal loss and anxiety.
