Many police departments across the state have advocates who work with officers to help victims/survivors. Police-based advocates are an important connection between victims/survivors and the officers and detectives. The advocates can answer questions about the case, find information, and make referrals to other resources in the community. Many advocates are available to respond to crime scenes, hospitals, residences, etc., at any time, day or night, when requested to do so by an officer.
