The Victims Services Division of the Office of the
Fayette County Sheriff facilitates mutual understanding
and open communication between the courts and the
victims of domestic crime, their families, and our
community. This division intervenes on behalf of victims
in domestic crises and acts as their advocate during the
filing of an emergency protective order and the
procession of their cases through the judicial system.
This division is composed of experienced and
professional personnel -- all of whom have an in-depth
knowledge of the Criminal Justice System and the
challenges of coping with domestic trauma. In addition
to the initial crisis intervention and assessment, we
create an appropriate strategy for their long-term
assistance and recovery.
The Division also offers referrals to and
coordination with other community resources and agencies
that offer services to the victims of domestic crimes
and their families. We work closely with these community
agencies in order to best serve the victim and to
prevent the duplication of services.
Please contact or visit the Victims Services Division
for more information.
