Do You Need Our Support In Reporting A Crime or Safety Concern?

Many people reach out to us as they have been a witness to, or the victim of a crime – or they have a concern about a safety issue but they are not sure how or where to report that concern.

We will do our best to advocate for victims and witnesses to ensure that the appropriate government agencies and resources are fully aware of the matter and we can help victims and witnesses to understand the criminal justice system process a little better.

For safety concerns and matters, we will do our best to relate the necessary information to the most appropriate entity if we can identify one to help mitigate or remedy the situation.

Please use our CONTACT US option to send us your questions or requests and be sure to include all of the relevant details so we can follow-up with you.

Some important things to consider before contacting us.


WE ARE NOT A LAW ENFORCEMENT OR GOVERNMENT AGENCY

NOTE, that we are a volunteer community SAFETY organization only. We are NOT a Law Enforcement or Government agency, however we work very closely with law enforcement officials and agencies at the National, State, and local level and we have connections to local government officials and to many community organizations and nonprofits. This often helps us to advocate for victims, witnesses, and for the resolution of safety concerns brought to our attention.


IF YOU ARE THE VICTIM OF A CRIME

Please report the matter to POLICE as soon as possible, or as soon as it is safe for you to do so.

Ask for a CASE # and/or a CAD # related to your Police report as this will be how the matter is officially tracked and this will be helpful if we need to reach out to law enforcement entities to advocate on your behalf.

Provide as much detail as you can, or feel comfortable doing, about the incident, your situation, and how you would like us to assist you.

DO YOU HAVE A SAFETY CONCERN?

Please provide as much detail as possible regarding your concern to allow us to verify the concern and determine the most appropriate department, agency, or community resources we can collaborate with to identify solutions, resources, and options to hopefully mitigate or remedy the concern.


NO GUARANTEES

As a nonprofit volunteer community organization, we have absolutely NO AUTHORITY and NO POWER other than the close cooperation and collaborative relationships we enjoy with many government and community agencies, departments, and organizations.  We will advocate and work on issues that we identify as important, but we cannot guarantee any outcome or result.

We will do our best, with the resources we have available, using the support offered to us to make a positive impact.
