National Victims of Crime Awareness Week is coming up next week April 6 to 12.

The Terrace and District RCMP Victims Services Program services are provided by two paid staff, and three dedicated volunteer support workers, who provided more than 500 hours of service last year.

All services are provided free of charge and include: emotional support; police requested crisis response; information on the status of the police investigation and the progress of the case through the court system; information on how the criminal justice system works; assistance completing Crime Victim Assistance compensation forms; assistance completing Victim Impact Statements; referral to appropriate social, legal, financial, counselling and other needed services; and court updates and court orientation for witnesses who are required to testify.

RCMP Victim Services are available in almost every RCMP detachment throughout B.C.

Victim Services is delivered under contract with the Ministry of Justice, Victim Services and Crime Prevention Division, and is either fully funded by the Ministry or jointly funded by the Ministry and local government.
