Victim Services Program

Vic. Advoc. 1Program Information

Our Victim Services Program includes two full-time advocates who are committed to including victims in every step of the criminal justice process. They are dedicated to serving adult and child victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Audrey Hansen and Nancy Vejvoda are our advocates for general crimes.


It is the mission of the Victim Services Program to provide thoughtful, nonjudgmental outreach and response to the needs of crime victims and witnesses and to ensure the protection of their rights and interests.  To that end, we have the following goals:

  • To follow statutory requirements so that the rights of victims and witnesses are known and observed.
  • To provide notification to victims of options, case status, services, the restitution process, and court practices.
  • To ensure that all victims have an avenue for participation in their case and are accommodated and made comfortable to the fullest extent possible.

We are especially committed to helping child victims and their families, and pledge to work hardest to make the system work for children. We need your help to make justice happen, and we hope we can give you the support you need along the way.


  • Assistance with return of property held as evidence.
  • Help in getting protective orders, victim compensation, restitution, and in giving victim impact statements to the court
  • Information about the status of the case and the criminal process.
  • Referrals to supportive community resources such as counselors, medical professionals, support groups and advocacy programs
  • Sitting with you in court and meetings with prosecutors and, in some cases, with law enforcement officials.

If you have additional needs or safety concerns, please contact our office at 360-378-4101. We are committed to working with other organizations to see that crime victims receive the services they need and deserve.
