The FBI released the below information:
Every day, the FBI works to protect the American people, but did you know the FBI has an entire division dedicated to assisting victims of crime and their families? The Victim Services Division (VSD) plays a key role in protecting the public by ensuring victims of crime receive the assistance and resources they need and are entitled to by law. VSD assists in all types of investigations, including crimes against children, civil rights, human trafficking, terrorist attacks, violent crime, cyber crime, and financial fraud. VSD engages with each victim individually to determine what types of services and resources they need.
Since its inception, the FBI’s victim assistance program has provided services—such as crisis intervention, emergency travel assistance, and local referrals for counseling, housing, and other services—to over 2 million victims and has conducted over 14,000 child/adolescent forensic interviews.
