The Victim Advocate Law Enforcement (VALE) program was developed in response to a need for crisis intervention, immediate services support and to assist with the judicial process for victims, witnesses and survivors of a violent crime. The intervention helps to reduce barriers while offering comprehensive, client-centered assistance to individuals and families affected by violence and abuse. Our goal is to respond compassionately to all victims of crime, treating them with fairness and respect. VALE offers in-person support during an interview or statement. In some instances, the victim may request the advocate to be present while filing a police report for questions or concerns. The program informs victims about resources and options to help them determine a safety plan to protect them and their family members. 

VALE links victims to resources such Victim of Crime Program, TPO/Stalking court advocates, court accompaniment, counseling services, healthcare, emergency assistance for housing, utilities, clothing, food and much more.
