Victims Assistance

The Irmo Police Department’s Community Services Division has officers trained in providing victim’s services in their time of need. We can provide support, information, and assistance to victims and witnesses as their criminal cases make their way through the criminal justice system. The program is designed to help victims and witnesses who are physically, financially, or emotionally harmed by crime and to protect the rights of victims and witnesses. It is the policy of the Irmo Police Department to treat victims and witnesses of a crime with fairness, compassion, and dignity. We are committed to the development and implementation of appropriate programs that will provide victim and witnesses assistance from future harm.
