Victim Services is a police-based program located in the Red Deer RCMP downtown detachment at 4602 - 51 Avenue in Red Deer, Alberta.

Following a traumatic experience in which you are the victim of a crime, misfortune or tragedy, you may be overwhelmed, confused and distrustful of others. Victim Services can help by providing support, information and referrals.

Support

We provide a listening ear, comfort and reassurance. We will talk to you on the telephone, visit you in your home or at the hospital and accompany you to court, if necessary.

Information

When you need information, we can be a direct resource, linking you to the justice system and to those handling your police file. We can answer your questions about police procedures and the court system. We can also provide resource materials and forms relevant to your needs and circumstances. Visit the Red Deer City Victim Services Unit's website.

Referrals

We will provide you with information on local services and agencies and then help you decide which of these resources are the most appropriate to help you in your particular situation.
