 Mission Statement:

The mission of the Carver County Victim/Witness Program is to work directly with victims to reduce the impact of the crime. Staff will work towards assisting crime victims in rebuilding their lives through support, information and referrals.

The Carver County Victim/Witness Program will protect the statutory rights of crime victims, provide emergency assistance in the immediate aftermath of the crime, and provide on-going support to ease the process of participation in the criminal justice system.

The Carver County Victim/Witness Program will also assist witnesses who have been subpoenaed to appear in court.

 The Carver County Victim/Witness Program has three staff members that are available, at differing levels, to provide crisis intervention services, emergency resources, support counseling, referrals, support during a criminal proceeding, assistance with compensation claims and other services as required by individual circumstances.

Staff members are equipped to work with interpreters to assist crime victims.  


Tampering with a witness is against the law. If you are threatened, call your local law enforcement agency immediately and also notify the prosecuting attorney.
