Victim Resources

The Fox Cities Victim Crisis Response Team members respond to a variety of incidents including domestic violence, suicide, homicide, robbery, abuse, death notifications, accidents and many more.

The VCR Team strives to offer victims assistance with 3 major needs after a crisis:

  • Victims need to FEEL SAFE
  • Victims need to EXPRESS EMOTION
  • Victims need to KNOW WHAT

With those in mind, the goals of the VCR program is to:

  • To enhance the quality of justice by addressing the emotional, social, and informational needs of victims and witnesses.
  • To enhance law enforcement officers by assisting them in providing on-scene emotional support for victims and witnesses as well as providing services to work towards obtaining the most effective processing for all involved.
  • To meet the needs of all by responding with immediate assistance and providing community referrals.

Below you will find useful links and resources that you may find beneficial after a crisis:
