What services are available?

Although most deaths caused by homicide are prosecuted, we offer continued support for the homicide survivor, regardless of the possibility of criminal prosecution. We are also available to provide the following additional services:

  • Information regarding the police investigation
  • Information on the role of the Coroner and information regarding funeral arrangements
  • Orientation to the Criminal Justice System
  • 24-hour crisis intervention
  • Referrals to social service agencies
  • Victim Compensation Information
  • Support groups for homicide survivors

Since homicide survivors are not ordinarily involved (as witnesses) in the criminal prosecution, an Advocate will notify survivors of all Court proceedings, arrange a meeting with the Assistant Prosecuting Attorney handling the case, and arrange for someone to accompany them when they go to Court hearings.
