Crime Victim Services

Candlelight vigil for domestic violence awareness month

Crime can impact anyone, anywhere- families and children are particularly vulnerable. The League City Police Department recognizes the effects of crime are far-reaching and continue on after an arrest or court judgment. The results of violent crime are often physically and emotionally damaging, as well as, financially destructive. We are committed to helping crime victims navigate the criminal justice system and rebuild their lives by providing a licensed social worker to educate survivors of crime about their rights and inform them of additional services that may be available.

About the Victim Advocate Program

Our Crime Victims Advocate, Stephanie Dietrich, has served with our Department since February 2012. Our primary goal is to alleviate the psychological and emotional trauma incurred as a result of violent crime. Addressing these needs will, in turn, increase victim and witness well-being and willingness to cooperate with law enforcement in the investigation and prosecution of crimes. The Victim Advocate Program provides on call support to victims of violent crime. Specialized assistance is available at the crime scene and throughout the investigative phase and criminal justice process, including the following:

  • On-scene Crisis Intervention
  • Emotional support to survivors and victim’s family members
  • Referrals to support groups, shelter and housing facilities, agencies that provide medical and mental health services, and financial support
  • Assistance with filing for Crime Victims’ Compensation
  • Education on the criminal justice system, including obtaining protective orders and court procedures
  • Assistance with filing a Victim Impact Statement
  • Assistance in recovery of property
  • Personal safety planning
  • Counseling
