Battlefords Victim Services volunteers and staff offer a range of services to help you cope with what has happened, including court orientation and support for victims who are required to testify.
Witnesses of crime are less confused and frightened by the criminal justice system once they know how it works. A support worker can explain the system guide you through the process of testifying.
Most people find going to court easier if they are familiar with the courtroom and what takes place. A support worker can provide court orientation. This can be a combination of verbal and written information as well as a tour of the courtroom.
To get a better idea about the court process and how it can relate to you please visit the following web page at www.courtprep.ca or click on the picture.
