Register your security cameras to help solve crimes in our neighborhoods.
The mission of our unit is to empower crime victims by providing the tools needed to overcome the trauma of victimization. We work to inform victims of their rights and advocate for those rights to be upheld. In doing so, we respect and encourage each person’s right to make his or her own informed decisions as they navigate the criminal justice system. Victim Services is proactive in reaching out to victims in the community through education and awareness activities. Additionally, we provide support to the emergency first responders of Wyandotte County to enhance services to victims.
