Being a victim of crime can feel overwhelming or isolating. UWPD has a full time Victim Advocate available to support victims, their families, and witnesses through the process of physical, emotional and financial recovery. Our Advocate is available to help with a variety of safety concerns, including dating violence, sexual assault and stalking.
It is not necessary to make a police report in order to meet with the UWPD Victim Advocate. You can meet to discuss resources, options and to develop with a plan.
This includes assistance in:
- Locating Crisis Clinic resources, both on and off campus, for a variety of needs including counseling and health services, civil legal assistance, and housing.
- Obtaining a King County protection order including transportation to court, help in filing the paperwork and preparation for hearings.
- Learning about reporting options including Title IX, UCIRO, and contact with police.
- Navigating the criminal justice system, including assistance in preparing for court appearances, facilitating contact with the prosecutor and monitoring the case through the final disposition.
- Filing for Crime Victim’s Compensation, Address Confidentiality Program, and other services available to victims in Washington State.
- Planning for your future safety.
