Victim Services

The Georgetown Police Department understands the importance of providing follow up services to victims of crime. Often times, victims and survivors are left to cope with unfamiliar emotions, may feel overwhelmed and might not know where to go to seek professional assistance. The department’s Victim Services Specialist works with victims of violent crime by providing direct support, crisis intervention, court accompaniment, information, and access to community services – all with the hope of reducing and eliminating additional trauma. The goal is to increase positive interaction between survivors of crime and law enforcement all while being survivor-centered and trauma-informed.
