Pima County Attorney’s Office, Victim Services Division
The Victim Services Division assists victims at crime scenes and at court hearings, providing support for crime victims and guiding them through the criminal justice system.
The Pima County Attorney’s Victim Services Division, established in 1975, was the first in the nation to provide comprehensive assistance to victims of crimes. It has served as a model for programs in other states and in several foreign countries. More than 25 staff plus 120 volunteers are on call 24 hours a day to serve crime victims.
Our Victim Services staff and volunteers have been called upon to work with the victims of the January 8th shooting tragedy, the September 11th terrorist attacks, the Oklahoma City bombing, the war and genocide in Bosnia, and other local and national tragedies. Each year Victim Services makes more than 16,000 victim contacts and helps more than 5,000 people in crisis.
