The Victim Witness Unit in collaboration with the District Attorney’s Office strives to provide services and resources to survivors of crime. The agency serves survivors of all types of crimes in Monterey County. The problem addressed by this capstone is the financial burden survivors will come across during the criminal justice process. The project consisted of a long form video that will provide the community and intended audience with information about available services to survivors of crime. Survivors of crime are often not aware of the full scope of services that can be given to them as they go through this tough process. The agency can take a step further on addressing this problem by working outside in the community. For example, an idea of this would be tabling in certain areas that will target the majority of their clients. This will provide the population with another form of comfort and certainty different from what it would be by showing up to an office.
