Police Based Victim Services Program
The Victim Services Coordinator provides support to people who are victims and/or witnesses of a crime or accident. The Coordinator offers guidance, advocacy, and information to clients going through the legal system. The Victim Support Worker is trained and skilled at supporting clients who are experiencing the immediate trauma and grief as a result of a critical incident and supports individuals on an emotional and practical level for the entire process of the incident (from the immediate occurrence through to the months of judicial processing). Stress debriefing after a critical incident in the workplace, schools and community is also a service provided by this program.
