SAN FRANCISCO – Today, as part of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin released a Victim Services Fact Sheet to explain how the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office Victim Services Division functions and to educate community members about the process of serving crime victims.  As can be seen on the District Attorney’s Office’s new Victim Services dashboard, the District Attorney’s Victim Services Division is serving more victims than ever before.  

“The San Francisco District Attorney’s Office’s Victim Services Division is here to help crime survivors navigate the legal system, understand the court process, and connect victims with vital services to aid in healing,” said District Attorney Chesa Boudin. “We provide services to victims regardless of whether an arrest is made, or charges are brought. This flowchart, available in English, Chinese, and Spanish, provides a useful tool for victims to simplify some of the legal process.”

The Victim Services Fact Sheet is available on the San Francisco District Attorney’s website on the Reports and Fact Sheets page where other fact sheets are also available, covering topics like Diversion, Domestic Violence, and Narcotics.

If you or someone you know is a victim of crime, please contact the San Francisco District Attorney’s Victim Services Division at victimservices@sfgov.org or (628) 652-4100.
