The Victim/Witness Assistance Center (VWAC) is dedicated to assisting victims and witnesses through the criminal prosecution system. Created in 1976, VWAC strives to provide victim centered services through best practices and community partnerships.

When a case is filed with the District Attorney’s Office, all victims and witnesses are notified by mail that a criminal complaint has been filed. Victims and witnesses are advised that they may receive a subpoena to testify and are encouraged to contact our office to speak with their assigned advocate for further information regarding the status of a case or any victim related services.

VWAC Mission:

To provide compassionate service to victims, witnesses and our community.

VWAC Vision:

  • To deliver Victim/Witness services that help to “personalize” government.
  • To provide our services with integrity and knowledge.
  • To constantly improve.
