Victim & Community

Message from Solicitor Kevin Brackett:

As a victim or witness of a crime you play a crucial role in bringing the offender to justice. Without your cooperation in a case the defendant may well go unpunished. Therefore, it is important that you be made to understand that you are part of the solution rather than part of the problem.

As Solicitor I realize that in the past the rights and feelings of victims and witnesses have often been neglected by the criminal justice system. My office has attempted to remedy this situation by providing a full range of services to you through the Victim-Witness Assistance Program. The purpose of this program is to offer support, information and assistance to victims and witnesses as their case makes its way through the criminal justice system. It is our goal to insure that your voice is heard and that you are not forgotten or ignored after a crime has been committed.

In the unfortunate event you or a member of your family become a victim of a criminal act or a witness to one, please do not hesitate to contact my Victim-Witness Program. My staff and I understand you may suffer inconvenience and personal hardship as a result of your encounter with criminal activity. We will do our very best to help you understand the system as well as minimize the impact that the legal process has on your life.
