Help for Victims and Witnesses
If you are the victim of a crime or a witness to a crime please contact your local police department immediately. There is no substitution for early reporting of criminal activity. Without a report of criminal activity there can be no prosecution.
The Franklin County District Attorney’s Office takes the role of victims and witnesses seriously. A part of every prosecution is input from the victims and witnesses in each case. This input is an important element in the attorneys’ decision making process. It is with this great concern that the Franklin County District Attorney’s Office presents the following information to assist victims and witnesses. The information given below is intended as a non-exhaustive list of help available from local, state, and other organizations that specialize in assisting victims and witnesses.
If you require further assistance or have questions please contact the Franklin County Victim Witness Services or the Franklin County District Attorney’s Office.
