Victim/Witness Assistance Program

Victim/Witness Assistance Program

The Victim/Witness Assistance Program is designed to help students, faculty, staff, and visitors to the campus who become victims of crime. This help includes assisting victims and witnesses who need to report crimes, preparing them to testify against accused persons, escorting them to any and all court appearances, preparing status reports on cases, regaining property used as evidence during a trial, getting compensation for losses, and assisting with academic intervention as necessary. The department has personnel trained in counseling victims of crime. Also available are references for on and off campus legal, financial, medical, and psychological assistance. Call 703-993-2818.
