Victim/Witness Information

If you are reading this, chances are you or someone close to you has been the victim of a violent crime. We recognize that such an experience can be traumatic and my have a substantial impact on your life. Going through the criminal justice system can be confusing and at times, intimidating. The District Attorney Victim Services Program exists to support and help victims through the justice process. The program is made up of social workers who advocate for victims, who help victims understand the court process and accompany them through court proceedings, assess victim needs, and provide referrals or assistance in obtaining other support services. It is our desire to minimize your concerns as much as possible.

Who is Eligible?

Anyone who is a victim of a person crime, especially those being prosecuted by the Salt Lake County District Attorney’s Office, is eligible for victim services. We customarily work with victims of sexual assault, child physical or sexual abuse, and domestic violence. We also work with family members of homicide victims and for similar cases in juvenile court. Services are not limited solely to these crimes, however, and there is no cost for services.
