What We Do

The Waukesha Victim Witness Assistance Program helps victims and witnesses of crime to navigate the criminal justice system and understand their rights.

Being the victim of a crime can be difficult and we are sorry for the circumstances which bring you to the justice system. Our goal is to provide you with information, support, and resources to assist you to exercise your rights and minimize any negative impacts of the crime.

We can assist with:

  • Information about your rights and the criminal justice system
  • Court event notification and case progress updates
  • Assistance with financial reimbursement programs, including restitution and Crime Victim Compensation
  • Safety planning, information about restraining orders and bond restrictions
  • Accompaniment to court, law enforcement and prosecutor meetings
  • Information and referral to community resources
  • And many other services and supports

Waukesha Victim Assistance also offers training and technical assistance regarding crime victims’ rights and concerns to other organizations, and advocates for public policy and resources to promote and enhance victims’ rights.

Some of the services provided by the Waukesha Victim Assistance Program are supported by Victims of Crime Act Subgrant No. 2021/2021-VO/VO-A-01/01- 17492, awarded by the Wisconsin Department of Justice Office of Crime Victim Services under a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice Office for Victims of Crime.
