How Can the VAP Help?

Most Citizens have little or no understanding of the law enforcement process or criminal justice system and are therefore ill-equipped to access information when they become a victim of crime. Dissatisfaction with the Court process, or result of a crime case, often stems from a lack of understanding as to:

How the process works:

The function of the Flint City Attorney, the judiciary and other court personnel.

How court can exercise victim's rights to effectively participate in the prosecution of the case.

The VAP is able to provide information as to how the systems operates, the role of the Flint City Attorney as Prosecutor and what the victim's rights and responsibilities are.

We are also able to access information regarding Court proceedings, past and present. We are able to advocate for the victim with the Flint Police Department, Community Service Providers, the Flint City Attorney's Office, the Probation Department and the Judiciary body of the 68th District Court.
