The well-trained staff of the Victim/Witness Assistance Unit helps guide individuals through the sometimes complex criminal justice system.

The successful prosecution of criminal cases depends mainly on the support and assistance victims and witnesses provide, especially their willingness to testify in court.

For too long the victims and witnesses of crime have been the forgotten persons of our justice system. Rarely do we give victims the help they need or the attention they deserve. In 1981 the Nebraska Victim Rights Bill was passed to recognize the rights of crime victims and witnesses.
