Victim / Witness Services
The impact of crime is far reaching. It affects the victims, witnesses, their families, neighborhoods and sometimes even whole communities.
The Office of Victim-Witness Advocacy, within the Salem County Prosecutor’s Office, was established to ensure that the rights of the crime victims are protected and that the criminal justice system treats crime victims and witnesses with fairness, understanding, dignity, and respect.
The Salem County Prosecutor’s Office of Victim-Witness Advocacy, through its dedicated staff, provides victims with information about the criminal justice process, their rights as victims and other support services. These services are available to help victims cope with the trauma and the aftermath of the victimization and to lessen the inconveniences often associated with participation in the criminal justice process.
