Southeast Regional Victim Services is a police-based crisis intervention program funded by Saskatchewan Justice. Victim Services works in partnership with the RCMP, Estevan, and Weyburn Police Services and the community to provide the best possible service to people who have been victimized during their involvement with the criminal justice system.
The purpose of Victim Services is to aid people who have been victimized by crime or traumatic events by providing information, advocacy, support, and referrals.
Victim Services offer services to people who have been the victims or witnesses of any crime or traumatic event regardless of their age. Our focus is on violent crime, persons crimes, residential break and enter and incidents involving serious injury or death.
The stated goals of victim service to be provided are:
1. To lessen the immediate and long term effects of crime experienced by victims.
2. To prevent further victimization within the criminal justice system.
3. To help victims cope with the effects of traumatic events.
4. To aid the police and criminal justice system in enhancing services to victims.
5. To develop and maintain effective community coordination to ensure that appropriate referral and information is given to the victim.
6. To assist the police in providing crime prevention/victim services to the community.
7. To enhance the communication and flow of information between the victim, the police and the criminal justice system
