The Victim & Witness Services Division

The Victim & Witness Services Unit of the BCSAO serves the victims and witnesses of all crimes that occur in Baltimore City, regardless of the status or outcome of the case. The unit is staffed by a team of dedicated victim advocates and social workers who serve as liaisons between victims, witnesses and prosecutors.

A Safe Space for Victims and Witnesses

In March of 2018, the BCSAO unveiled a new trauma-informed Victim & Witness Services Waiting Room in the Mitchell Courthouse that was renovated to create a more welcoming space for victims and witnesses of crime to receive services and await their appearances in court. The design plans were created by the nonprofit organization Design Angels of America and was executed by the Department of General Services. The renovation includes a dedicated play area for children, power-integrated furniture, and a computer allowing visitors to access resources while they await trial.
