Victim’s Advocate Programs are Available in the United States Virgin Island

The Virgin Islands Victim’s/Witness Advocate programs assist hundreds of victims each year on all three islands. They assist victims regardless of sex, race, age, income, religion and socio economic status. Other services victim advocates provide are police reports, restraining orders and court assistance.  

One of the primary responsibilities of a victim’s advocate is to act as a liaison for the victim with law enforcement, court and other social service agencies. Services provided are of no charge to the victim. Victim/Witness advocates are hardworking, dedicated individuals who display compassion and understanding in their job.
