At any time, anyone can become the victim or witness of a crime. Victims have no choice in becoming victims and may find themselves alone and helpless without resources. The Victim/Witness Services program was created to help with the trauma and confusion the victim suffers as a result of the commission of a crime. The Victim/Witness Services program also assists witnesses through the court process.
The Victim/Witness Services Office, located on the third floor of the Greene County Courthouse in the District Attorney’s Office, is dedicated to assisting victims of all crimes in Greene County. Victims of crime may seek assistance from this office regarding any and all aspects of their criminal experience.

Across the country, crime victims and other concerned citizens are using VINE for access to timely and reliable information about criminal cases and the custody status of offenders 24 hours a day via telephone, Internet or e-mail. Victims can call to inquire about the current status of an offender and register to be notified immediately in the event of an offender's release, escape, transfer or court appearance.
The solution is offered free of charge to registrants, is anonymous, available 24/7/365 and features multiple language support. The solution provides users with the information they need to feel secure, and enables governing staff to focus on their core responsibilities creating a greater, more efficient system.

When someone becomes a victim of violence or crime, it can be one of the most devastating experiences of their life. The state of Pennsylvania has enacted a Victims' Bill of Rights to ensure victims are informed, protected and supported as much as possible through the criminal and juvenile justice system, and personal recovery.
