Victim Assistance

If you are a victim of a crime, these agencies can help:

  • Victim Support Services (external link):
    Formerly known as Families & Friends of Violent Crime Victims
    Provides community-based support services to victims of all types of crime.
    1-800-346-7555 24-Hour helpline
  • King County WA VINE (external link):
    Victims of crime have a right to know about their offender's custody status.  With this service victims can use the telephone or Internet to search for information regarding the custody status of their offender and to register to receive telephone and e-mail notification when the offender’s custody status changes.
    Call toll-free 877-425-8463.

The King County Prosecutor's Office Victim Assistance Unit (VAU) automatically notifies victims and survivors of victims when felony charges are filed.

Restitution

Victims have the right to be reimbursed for losses caused directly in the commission of a crime.

Criminal restitution is money ordered by the court and paid by the offender. It is ordered at the time the offender is sentenced. Monies are paid to the Superior Court Clerk and then disbursed to the victim.
