Victim/Witness Assistance

Support for victims and witnesses of crime.

The Prosecutor's Victim Witness Program is designed to offer support to victims and witnesses of crime through the criminal court system. Our Victim/Witness Coordinators provide a variety of informational, referral, and personal support services to crime victims in court-related cases. Some of these services include:

  • Step-by-step explanations about the criminal court process and what to expect in the months ahead
  • Notification about case developments
  • Emotional support through the court process, including accompaniment to meetings and court proceedings
  • Assistance with restitution during prosecution for property loss or damage resulting from crime
  • Referrals to other community services such as local shelters, the domestic abuse court advocate, group or personal counseling providers and area support groups
  • Assistance in seeking reimbursement through the Arkansas Crime Victims Reparations Board for various out-of-pocket expenses resulting from the crime
  • Assistance in registering for victim notification through the V.I.N.E. electronic notification system and/or the Arkansas Department of Corrections (ADC)
  • Liaison between victims and prosecutors
