Victim / Witness Program

The Victim/Witness program uses specially trained PBSO employees with a social work background and education to assist victims and witnesses of crimes investigated by PBSO. Duties include contacting victims and witnesses to inform them of the pending release of offenders, counseling victims and witnesses, and helping them work with the criminal justice system to give needed testimony, and to refer them to services offered by various county and state programs. VINE (Victim Notification Everyday) information pertaining to the release of an offender may also be obtained through one of our advocates.

If you are the victim of a crime and need assistance please contact the PBSO Victim/Witness Unit at:
