As a crime victim or a witness of a crime, you have certain rights in the criminal justice system. There are services available to you so that your participation in the criminal justice system will be less stressful and more informed. This is accomplished through the County Offices of Victim-Witness Advocacy. In each of the 21 county prosecutors' offices, there is a County Office of Victim-Witness Advocacy. The Bergen County Victim-Witness Office is located in the Bergen County Justice Center in Hackensack, New Jersey.
This office is staffed with trained professionals who will assist and accompany you through prosecution to the final outcome of your case. The staff in the Victim-Witness Office will assist you in obtaining other needed social services such as counseling, crime compensation, and shelter service for women and their children in domestic violence situations.
The Bergen County Office of Victim-Witness Advocacy has provided services to thousands of crime victims and witnesses throughout the county. As trained crime victim advocates, we understand the physical as well as the emotional pain an individual can experience as a victim of crime. We are here to support you and ensure your rights as a crime victim are being respected.
