Victim Services Program
On January 1, 1998, the Wake County District Attorney's Office established a special Victim Services Program to better serve survivors of crime. This program is designed to ensure that crime victims receive information, assistance, and support as their cases progress through the criminal justice system.
VWAs’ duties consist of providing essential information to victims pertaining to their court cases, serving as liaison between the victim and the prosecutor, and keeping victims notified of all court proceedings. Additional support and services furnished by our VWA include:
To help citizens understand their rights granted under the Victim’s Rights Amendment to our State Constitution, a brochure was developed. This pamphlet describes these rights and familiarizes victims with the criminal justice process. It is also intended to lessen confusion, reduce frustration for crime victims, and help them understand their role in this system. The brochure is available in English and Spanish. In addition, a Trial Guide has been prepared to assist crime survivors whose cases proceed to court.
To receive additional information or learn more about our Victim Services Program, please contact our office at (919) 792-5000.
