According to the National Center for Victims of Crime, the trauma of victimization is a direct reaction to the aftermath of crime. “Crime victims suffer a tremendous amount of physical and psychological trauma. The primary injuries victims suffer can be grouped into three distinct categories: physical, financial and emotional. When victims do not receive the appropriate support and intervention in the aftermath of the crime, they suffer “secondary injuries.”

The Westchester County District Attorney’s Office recognizes that crime victims and their families need support and information at every stage of the criminal process. It also recognize that victims have rights, and the District Attorney is committed to ensuring that those rights are protected.
