Crime Victim Specialists and School Truancy Coordinator

The Crime Victim Unit within the Saratoga County District Attorney’s Office assists crime victims as their case is processed through the criminal justice system.  Crime Victim Specialists are available to explain the nature of the charges, advise as to how the victim’s case will proceed, provide information as to what the crime victim can expect and estimate a timetable as to how long the victim’s case will take before disposition.

In addition, Crime Victim Specialists meet to explain the grand jury, hearings and the trial process.  The Specialists are good at listening to crime victims and explaining in simple terms how the case will be handled.  They also provide a direct link to the prosecutor assigned to the case and can relay information from the victim to the prosecutor and back quickly, clearly and efficiently.

Crime Victim Specialists do not provide counseling or treatment services of any kind, nor do they provide legal advice.  Instead, they refer to numerous outside agencies that provide direct victim services.  A listing of direct service providers can be accessed through our Links Page within this web site.  You may also reach our Crime Victim Unit for additional information by calling our Crime Victim Unit at 518-885-2263.
