The purpose of the Burlington County Office of Victim Witness Advocacy is to ensure that the rights of crime victims and witnesses are protected and that their needs receive full attention. Our office is committed to the special needs of crime victims by offering support to help them cope with the aftermath of victimization and make their participation in the justice system less difficult and burdensome. A staff of six trained advocates and one Coordinator serve as liaisons between the victims and the criminal justice system. Advocates work closely with Assistant Prosecutors and the law enforcement community to help victims understand the vital role they play in the criminal justice process. Our program provides services that respond to the diverse needs of crime victims and witnesses in our county. Victims receive updated case status letters as their case proceeds through the system and they have the ability to work with a Victim Advocate on their case. Our office provides assistance with the Victim Information & Notification Everyday (V.I.N.E.) program which notifies victims when an offender is released from the custody of the County Jail or NJ Department of Corrections. Additional services include but are not limited to providing victims and witnesses with direct assistance, court accompaniment, making referrals to social service agencies, and assisting victims with completing applications for the New Jersey Victims of Crime Compensation Office (VCCO).
