Crime Victim Advocates

A survivor of violent crime may face many obstacles. The Montana criminal justice system and the State of Montana offer a variety of services and protections for crime victims. But accessing these services can be difficult, especially for a victim who may still be dealing with the effects of a recently committed crime.

Crime victim advocates provide free, confidential help and services to crime victims throughout Montana. Such services and help include:

  • Helping victims recover property or restitution.
  • Explaining a court proceeding and offering a safe, secure place during proceedings.
  • Providing crisis counseling, emotional support and guidance.
  • Informing victims of their rights.
  • Helping victims work with their employers if a victim has to miss work because of a trial.
  • Informing victims of state programs like Crime Victim Compensation, Address Confidentiality and the Forensic Rape Exam Payment Program.

Montana’s crime victim advocates are affiliated with local programs and located throughout the state.
