Many exciting changes have taken place over the last several years that have provided a new day for Georgia's crime victims. Gwinnett County has been and continues to be a leader in ensuring that crime victims receive those rights that are afforded to them under Georgia law.
No longer are crime victims kept at a distance from the criminal justice and judicial systems, but are now in the forefront of the information that is needed. The Gwinnett County Victim Witness Program is a full service program that begins when the crime is reported and only ends at the final disposition of the case.
Criminal victimization, while not an experience that any of us hope for, can at least be less traumatic when the proper information is available. It is our goal that all crime victims in Gwinnett County will have that information available to them when needed.
Under the Crime Victim's Bill of Rights, a list of these mandated notifications and victim rights are available to anyone who has been victimized. If you have questions as a crime victim, or as a witness to a crime, please do not hesitate to contact our office at (770) 822.8444. We are available to assist you in any why that we can.
