Crime Victims & Support Services

 


Support Services

Our Support Services Division includes important internal departments that are essential to the structure and operational needs of the Sheriff's Office across a wide variety of areas.


Victim's Advocate

The Law Enforcement Victim Advocate is often one of the first to respond to a crime scene to assist victims and survivors. During this critical time victims may experience a wide range of feelings and emotions.

As an advocate, we can assist in many ways:

  • Provide emotional and moral support
  • Conduct on-scene crisis intervention and grief & bereavement counseling
  • Act as a liaison between victim, deputies, detectives, and community-based agencies
  • Identify and inform victims of their rights under the law
  • Educate law enforcement and victims of new laws pertaining to specific victimization
  • Provide information about professional counseling and support groups
  • Offer assistance with filing crime victim’s compensation to help with lost wages, medical, counseling, and funeral expenses
  • Help prepare victims for court injunction hearings, provide court advocacy and accompaniment
  • Provide transport to court, referrals to emergency shelter, and safety planning.
  • Assist victims in obtaining cellular phones for 911 emergencies
  • Provide information regarding current status of cases

If you need victim assistance, please call LRSO at 870-898-5115 or 870-898-7282
