Few events in one’s life are as traumatic as being a victim of crime. When this tragedy occurs, it is crucial that the perpetrator(s) be brought to justice, but it is just as important that victims and their families are offered assistance in putting their lives back together. The process of bringing criminals to justice often requires the assistance of civilian witnesses whose lives can also be seriously disrupted. In order to help victims access the necessary assistance resources and help both victims and witnesses during their participation in the criminal justice process, the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office offers the services of its Office of Victim-Witness Advocacy.
