Being a victim of crime can be a difficult and stressful experience. Reactions such as fear, anger, confusion and anxiety are all feelings common to victims.The Victim Service Section was established in 1982 to assist victims of crime and/or tragedy and their families by providing support, information and referrals to community support agencies.
To speak with someone in Victim Services, call (204) 986-6350 or email.
We are committed to giving victims timely and accurate information and referrals.
