Our Victim Advocate Unit was established to help our citizens cope with loss or come to terms with a painful reality. She is well-versed in community resources and able to help battered spouses find a safe place to live. She is also able to assist with the restraining order process or help someone who has just lost a loved one.
To say that this unit is the heart of our department would probably be cliché, but the statement is undoubtedly accurate.
