Victim Services Unit

  • Victim Services Logo with phone number


    The victim advocate's primary role is to help the School Police provide and coordinate services for students and employees who are victimized on campus and after school. The victim advocate is available to provide consultation and education regarding victimization and offer support and resources to the victims, thereby assisting students and families in achieving safety and well-being. The advocate will work with victims and families at school and anywhere else they may need support, like the hospital or court.

    See below for advocate contact information (on the left side) and utilize the drop-down menu (on the right side) to explore the School Police victim advocacy services that are available to you as well as other general resources in the community.
