Victim Advocates can be reached at (702) 828-2955 Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm. They can also be reached through email at VictimServices@lvmpd.com. Advocates are located at our Headquarters at 400 South Martin L. King Blvd., Building A. While advocates are available to provide support, resources, and advocacy, they do not have financial resources to replace or repair property damaged during the crime, and they cannot provide legal advice. Victim advocates educate and empower victims to seek justice by participating in investigations and following through with prosecution.
It is the mission of the Victim Services Unit to serve victims of crime by providing support and navigation through the criminal justice system by assisting with crisis intervention, advocacy and resources while encouraging safety practices to assist in reducing future victimization.
