Victim Services

Victim Services Division

The Victim Services Division (VSD) of the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office strives to make the criminal justice system humane and accessible by providing support and assistance to victims and their families in the aftermath of a crime, during criminal prosecution, and after a verdict has been reached. Even if justice is served in the courtroom, it does not always immediately change the way victims feel in their day-to-day lives afterwards.

Our division provides victims with advocacy, streamlines the process for collecting restitution and recouping compensation for financial losses when possible, and, in general, works tirelessly to support victims regain control over their lives.

Please contact us for more information if you are, or have been, a victim of crime.

Learn more about Victim Services from our Facebook Live with DA Boudin and Dr. Gena Castro Rodriguez, Chief of the Victim Services Division
