VICTIM SERVICES

 The Court Support program is designed to help people through the court process.

Victim(s) of Crime

The Red Deer City Victim Services Unit provides information to victims regarding the Criminal Justice System and the status of their particular case, court proceedings and court dispositions.

The Red Deer City Victim Services Unit will contact victims to provide the date of the first appearance and again if a trial date is set.

Unfortunately, Red Deer City Victim Services Unit  is unable to call for every court appearance.

However, victims are welcome to contact the Red Deer City Victim Services Unit at any time and we can provide you with a court update.

In cases where charges are laid and a court appearance becomes necessary, Red Deer City Victim Services Unit  may contact you and offer court preparation and/or court accompaniment.

 

Note:

There are several agencies in our community who also offer these services (Ex. Domestic Violence Court Case Project; Central Alberta Women’s Outreach; Central Alberta Sexual Assault Crisis Centre). 

Court Preparation & Accompaniment

Court preparation and accompaniment are offered to victims to help them through the court process. This can include providing an explanation of the court process, assisting with completion of forms, or being present in court with a victim during trial.
