What do I do if I’m the victim of a crime?

In case of emergency, you should call 911 immediately.

For a non-emergency report:

Give the police as much information as you can about the crime and the suspect(s). 

What is a subpoena and what should I do if I receive a one?

A subpoena is filed with the court and is an order for you to appear for a hearing at the scheduled date and time.  When you receive a subpoena call the office to let the Assistant District Attorney assigned to the case know that you received your subpoena.  He or she can give you further instructions as necessary.

Tips for Testifying

What if I no longer live at the address that I told the police in my report or statement?

In the event that you move from your current address or change your phone number, you should keep the District Attorney’s Office informed by contacting either the attorney assigned to the case or the victim advocate.

What can I do if I want to report drug activity anonymously?
