Victim Support http://www.edmontonpolice.ca/JoinEPS/Volunteering/Victim%20Support.aspx <p>In our community, citizens live with the fundamental expectation that they will not be victimized. This belief is based on the safety and security provided by law. Through this and&nbsp;in the presence of our justice system, our society has established&nbsp;safe communities and work environments. However, on occasion, and regardless of our best efforts, people do get hurt.</p> <p>When consequences are severe, and people experience serious trauma,&nbsp;victims require support.&nbsp; After a major incident, people sometimes find themselves re-victimized by the justice system, particularly in the treatment they receive when giving evidence. The challenge is to guide the victim through this process through education and support.&nbsp; As a volunteer with&nbsp;<a href="http://www.edmontonpolice.ca/EPS%20External/Home/VictimSupport/HowYouCanHelp.aspx">Victim Services</a> you can be a part of this process.&nbsp; </p> <p>Please check with your local&nbsp;divisional station&nbsp;for volunteer opportunities</p> en 20 Nov 2017 07:57:22 UT Commitment to Professionalism - Reduced Crime &amp; Victimization - Investigative Excellence - Increased Efficiency &amp; Effectiveness<br /> Copyright &copy; 2017, Edmonton Police Service.
