Crime Victim Assistance Advocates work directly with the Jean Laftte Police Department and the Jefferson Parish Sherif’s Office, as well as provide services above those available through law enforcement. They assist and respond to the victim’s needs, including compensation programs, counseling services and navigating the Judicial System. Advocates are trained in the field of victim’s assistance.
