Find out about Victim Services

Have you been affected by a crime? Do you need help supporting a victim of crime?

What does Victim Services do?

Who can access Victim Services?

No 2 people affected by crime have the same experience. We recognize that everyone has their own support needs, and we're here to help you through a difficult time.

  • victims of a crime;
  • witnesses of a crime;
  • friends and family members of a victim; and
  • service providers who support people affected by crime. 

When should you contact Victim Services?

You can contact us at any time – right after the crime occurs, or days, weeks or months later. It’s up to you, but getting in touch earlier means we can offer you more options.

Our offices are open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday. You can phone us or drop by (no appointment required).
