Victim Assistance Volunteer Team

Our Volunteer Program

The Victim Assistance Program is a division of the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office. The Victim Assistance Volunteer Team is a group of highly trained volunteers, specializing in crisis intervention for survivors, witnesses and families who have been traumatized by the experience of death, serious injury, violent crime, or natural disaster. Victim Assistance representatives are available to respond 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Our Purpose

Following a traumatic event, people often feel helpless, confused and emotionally shocked. After the Emergency Responders (fire, police, and EMS) conduct their initial investigation, they often have other calls they must attend to. Victim Service Response Teams remain with the victims in the immediate aftermath to assist the victim(s) with temporary support through the first difficult hours and provide referrals for further assistance.

Types of situations we respond to….

It is our ultimate goal to have the ability to respond to any situation in which emergency personnel would need our assistance including but not limited to; homicides, suicides/suicidal attempts, natural death, death notifications, fires, child/elder abuse, family violence, sexual Assaults, traffic accidents, general welfare concerns, violent crimes and natural disasters.
