The primary focus is alleviating the plight of victims, especially as they encounter the criminal justice system. Victims play a critical role in that system. The Texas Constitution and statutes give victims rights that must be respected and upheld.
As the Crime Victim's Coordinator, I would like to express the willingness of our office to assist all victim's of crime with any issues that may arise from a pending criminal case. We are readily available to assist victims during their involvement with the criminal justice system. Our office also provides the following services:
General information about the criminal justice system and court accompaniment;
Notification of the status of your case in the court system;
Referral to social service agencies;
Aid in preparing an application through the Crime Victim Compensation fund;
Aid in completing the Victim Information Sheet and Victim Impact Statement; and
Aid in returning property involved in a criminal case.
