Victim Services

The Victim Services Division provides comprehensive advocacy and support to victims and witnesses of crime. The Victim Services Division offers free services in English, Cantonese, Mandarin, Spanish and Vietnamese. Our Victim Advocates work to ensure that crime victims and their families are provided the services and information necessary to be an integral part of of the criminal case process. It is our mission to ensure that you are treated fairly and that your voice is heard. 

Victim Advocates can provide the following services:
  • Information on your rights as a crime victim
  • Guidance on dealing with the court system
  • Contact information for local resources and counseling referrals
  • Assistance in filling out applications for the California Victim Compensation Program (CalVCP) to reimburse you for out-of-pocket expenses related to your victimization
  • Ongoing support while you learn to cope
  • Spanish, Vietnamese, Mandarin, and Cantonese speaking advocates are available


In honor of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, and in keeping with this year’s theme “Engaging Communities/Empowering Victims”, the Office of District Attorney George Gascón Victim Services Unit will host two events for the community.
