CVS assists victims of crime by providing guidance and support, post-conviction. This means that the case has been resolved and the offender has either been sentenced to probation, sentenced to jail/prison, or has been found innocent and released. If you are a victim and your case has not yet been resolved, then you will be assigned a Victims’ Advocate from the District Attorney’s Office. (503-846-8671)
Our Victims' Assistance Specialists work closely with Probation/Parole Officers, Community Corrections, the District Attorney's Office, the Oregon State Parole Board, and local community partners to ensure that victims receive the most up-to-date information on offenders, their rights as a crime victim, and the services available to them.
Some specific things that we can assist you with include:
- Information about an offender’s probation guidelines
- Victims' Rights
- Safety Planning
- Referrals to counseling and support groups
- Basic Needs Resources
- Information on how to obtain a Protective Order
If you would like to know more about our services, please contact our Victims’ Assistance Specialist Amy Smith (503)-846-3026 or Supervisor Ken Rolfe (503) 846-4319.
