The Victim/Witness Assistance Program furnishes victims, witnesses and family members of victims with needed information, advocacy and the opportunity to participate more effectively within the criminal justice system. This program ensures that victims’ rights, as provided by Louisiana law, are honored and protected. While the program focuses primarily on victims of violent crime, it is staffed by Victim/Witness Assistance coordinators who will accommodate all crime victims whose cases are being prosecuted by this office, including elder abuse and neglect, domestic abuse and child abuse victims.
