The Draper Police Department, Draper City Prosecutor, and the City of Draper are concerned with the extent of crimes committed in our city and how they can affect not only the victims but the citizens and community as a whole. Some normal reactions to the trauma of crisis and crime can include:
Shock and disbelief
Confusion and numbness
A sense of helplessness
Restlessness or sleeplessness
Change in appetite
Heightened awareness or startle easily
Other physical and emotional reactions
Intervention & Support Available
The Victim Advocate program will respond to crime victims to provide crisis intervention and support.
The program's mission is to provide services and resources to victims of violent crime. By identifying strategies to help victims be safe, and by providing contact information for community partners to find counseling, legal assistance, shelter, and other services, crime victims and their families can begin re-establishing normal routines.
Criminal Justice Process
The Victim Advocate Program can also support victims through the criminal justice process. Crime victims can request explanation of procedures and information about the case.
