Victim Advocacy Services
Janet Hulse, San Bernardino District Attorney, Office on Victim Advocacy Services
In the past victims of crime have often felt that they had few rights and too little support navigating confusing legal system. The Victim Services unit helps to link witnesses and survivors to counseling and support services in the community, to short-term emergency services, and possibly to compensation for expenses related to the crime. They also help victims work with the DA's office and with law enforcement.
Janet Hulse has spent more than a decade working with victims and witnesses in the Inland Empire. Her position has given her experience and specialized training to work with survivors of child abuse, domestic violence, and elder abuse.
