In honor of National Crime Victims Rights Week, the Sullivan County Probation Department Crime Victims Program would like to gratefully acknowledge the following volunteers for their service during the past year: Charles Gramlich, Branka Monaco and Anne Solenski.
The Sullivan County Crime Victims Program was established during 1998 by the Sullivan County Legislature. The program is designed to help victims of crime within Sullivan County through a stressful period.
During 2012, the Sullivan Crime Victims Program assisted 366 victims and their family members, including 11 surviving family members of homicide victims. The services offered by the program, at no cost to victims, may include compassionate listening and emotional support, accompaniment to court, hospitals, and police agencies, preparation of Victim Impact Statements submitted to sentencing courts to provide perspective regarding the experiences and needs of the victim, referrals to available services, advocacy with service providers and criminal justice agencies and assistance in filing a claim for compensation with the New York State Office of Victims Services (OVS), if applicable.
The Crime Victim Program operates within the Sullivan County Probation Department in the annex of the Sullivan County Government Center, Monticello, NY and is funded both by grant monies from the New York State Office of Victims Services (OVS) through fines raised from convicted offenders, and the Sullivan County Legislature.
If you or someone you know has been victimized by crime, feel free to call the Sullivan County Crime Victims Program at 845/807-0351 for information and assistance. All information is kept confidential.
