The Office of Victim Services (OVS) offers training and information to criminal justice professionals, service providers, educational institutions, the public, and any person or agency that assists crime victims.

OVS trainings are designed to provide valuable information and knowledge to support the delivery of comprehensive, quality services to crime victims. OVS collaborates with community partners to co-sponsor trainings and events that focus on specific victim issues.
