VCR Program


The Victim Crisis Response (VCR) Team is a dedicated group of trained volunteers who assist local law enforcement agencies in responding to the immediate needs of victims of crime and those in crisis. It is our goal to ensure that victims are treated with dignity, respect, fairness, compassion, courtesy and sensitivity. 

The Fox Cities Victim Crisis Response Team members respond to a variety of incidents including domestic violence, suicide, homicide, robbery, abuse, death notifications, accidents and many more. 

We offer:

  • On scene response
  • Emotional support
  • Crisis intervention
  • Immediate needs assessment
  • Referrals to community resources
  • Education on crisis, trauma, and grief
  • Assistance with Crime Victim Compensation
  • Assistance in making phone calls to family and friends
  • Help prepare victims/families for what is to come (legal, media, emotional, etc.)
  • Follow up
