The Delta Police Department understands that crime is unpredictable and everyone is a potential victim regardless of ethnicity, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, financial or cummunity standing. Being a victim is always a traumatic experience, and the victim often feels "lost" in the system. Our Victim Advocate Unit is designed to assist the victim, witnesses and their family and friends who have experienced a traumatic incident from the moment it is reported until it is through the judicial system, offering the victim emotional support and information to move from being a victim of crime to a survivor.
We believe in the Victims Bill of Rights and are committed to providing assistance to those victims. The program has staff and volunteers who are trained to listen, offer support and give victims the information and/or referrals they need. This also includes crime victims compensation that will assist with expenses and therapy.
