The Victim Witness Assistance Program is located within the Office
of the Commonwealth Attorney on Main Street in Courtland, VA. 
The program was instituted in September 1996 by Commonwealth 
Attorney, Richard C. Grizzard.  The purpose of the program is to
reduce the trauma of victimization and encourage crime victims to
cooperate with and participate in the criminal justice system by
providing direct services, including information and assistance
required by the Crime Victim and Witness Rights Act.  The program
provides explanation of complexities of the criminal justice system,
referrals for specialized counseling or social services, and information
and direction in applying for services available, including benefits
from the Virginia Victims Fund.
