Victim Services

The Victims’ Assistance Program (VAP) is a unit in the District Attorney's Office that specializes in helping crime victims in Wasco County. The primary function of this program is to help crime victims navigate the criminal justice system process and provide assistance that promotes establishing victim stabilization after the crime.

The District Attorney’s Office and the Victims’ Assistance Program work to ensure that victims are treated with dignity, respect, and compassion.

"Our mission is to empower victims through timely, accurate, and pertinent information. We recognize justice may be defined differently to those involved and we strive to promote their voice within the criminal justice system."

"Nuestra misión es empoderar a las víctimas a través de información oportuna, precisa y pertinente. Reconocemos que la justicia puede definirse de manera diferente a los involucrados y nos esforzamos por promover su voz dentro del sistema de justicia penal".
