Office of the Vermont Attorney General

Victim Services

The Office provides support to Victims of Crime and their families through the services of a Victim Advocate. The Advocate works closely with the prosecutors and with other statewide and local agencies to ensure that crime victims receive the best services available.

Being a victim of crime can be a painful and difficult experience. As a victim, or a victim’s family member, you may feel helpless, angry or fearful. You may also be frustrated and confused by the legal system. There are services designed to help you recover from the crime and to help navigate the legal system.
