Victim Services

The Victim Services Advocacy Program in the City of Wichita Prosecutor's Office provides victims of all types of crimes with support and information regarding the legal process. Two victim advocates assist victims of domestic violence, theft, financial crimes, battery, and DUI cases through the municipal court process, as well as on appeal of these type of cases. These advocates are COURT ADVOCATES, not community advocates. For a list of community advocates, please visit the crime page below that pertains to you.

Our number one goal is to provide quality assistance to victims of municipal court crimes so that they are included in the court process and their voice is heard in court, and they are connected with any community resource if needed. We do this by:

  • Providing immediate and sustained contact with victims to assist them with their participation in court proceedings,
  • Providing a network of advocacy services, including referrals to financial, legal, housing, and counseling resources,
  • Educating victims about the cycle of violence and engage in safety planning implementation, and
  • Improving community awareness of the legal process and the role of the Victim Services Advocates within the City Attorney's Office.
