Ventura County District Attorney, Greg Totten and Crime Victim’s Assistance Program Supervisor, Rachael Watkins, speak with Sandra Siepak of Our Ventura TV about the role of their office and service to Ventura County, as well as the Crime Victims’ Assistance Unit.
The mission of the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office is to promote justice and protect the people of the County of Ventura and the State of California by aggressively and fairly prosecuting those who violate the law.
The Crime Victims’ Assistance Unit functions to guide victims through the criminal justice process, to ensure victims’ rights are honored, and to assist victims in obtaining services to help them cope with the trauma they have suffered. Through the efforts of a dedicated team of Victim Advocates, the Victims’ Assistance Unit provides comprehensive services to victims of all types of crime.
Advocates accompany victims to court, provide a supportive ear, and display a calm strength to help victims get through court proceedings that can be frightening and highly emotional.
