Victim Services Representatives

To enhance support for crime victims and survivors, each Nebraska Department of Correctional Services institution/program has a designated Victim Assistance Representative. These individuals promote communication, responsiveness and victim-sensitive principles and practices at each location. They collaborate with the Victim Services Coordinator, other Nebraska Department of Correctional Services staff and community stakeholders to improve our practices addressing the needs of victims and survivors.

Victim Services Representatives meet quarterly to discuss critical incidents and possible improvements to victim services provided by the Department. Guest speakers from various community victim service providers frequently visit during these meetings to keep Victim Services Representatives knowledgeable and updated on resources in their community.

Victim Services Representatives are actively involved in training all employees on victim issues and the policies and procedures outlining a critical event and the services available to them. They also assist in the development and updating of protocols for responding to inmate-on-staff assaults at their institution.

If you have specific questions on a facility or program where an inmate is located, the Victim Assistance Representative will be happy to answer questions. Simply contact the institution and ask to speak to with the Victim Assistance Representative.
