The Victim/Witness Assistance Unit
The Victim / Witness Unit of the United States Attorney’s Office provides services for victims and witnesses of federal crimes. Our staff is comprised of a Victim-Witness Coordinator who covers the entire District, a Victim-Witness Specialist and Victim-Witness Assistant in Baltimore and one Victim-Witness Specialist in Greenbelt. They provide: crisis intervention; case status information; travel arrangements for witnesses; education regarding the federal criminal justice system; referrals to various social service and medical organizations in the county, state and other federal agencies; special services for child victims, the elderly and handicapped victims; accompaniment in court; and compensation claims assistance.
Victims and witnesses serve a vital role in the prosecution of federal offenses. Without their assistance, prosecuting federal offenders would often prove difficult. It is our goal to ensure that victims and witnesses are treated fairly and with dignity, and that they are fully afforded all rights provided to them under both federal and state law.
