Victim Witness Unit
Victim-Witness Assistance Program
A violent crime can impact many aspects of a person's life. Not
only does crime affect the victim but also their loved ones and
sometimes, an entire community. A crime can have long lasting physical,
emotional and financial effects.
Often the needs of crime victims can appear to be overshadowed
by the focus on the investigation and prosecution of the accused.
The Santa Barbara County District Attorney's Office Victim-Witness
Assistance Program seeks to make the criminal justice system more
understandable, accessible and responsive to the concerns of victims
Our Victim Advocates are available to ensure that crime victims
and their family members are kept informed and supported throughout
the criminal justice process.
We have specially trained advocates to assist victims of elder/dependent
adult abuse and domestic violence.
Legal Residency is not required in order
to receive Victim-Witness Assistance Services.
