The King William and King and Queen Victim/Witness Assistance Program was developed to assist those who find themselves involved in the criminal justice system as crime victims or witnesses. This program, operated by the Offices of the Sheriffs and Offices of the Commonwealth Attorneys, helps ensure that fair and compassionate treatment is given to all victims and witnesses. Our goal is to reduce confusion by explaining the criminal justice process while providing information about services that are available.
The legal process can be long and complicated. The Victim/Witness Assistance Program is available to make sure the needs of victims and witnesses are met.
