As many of you are aware, the mission of the Crime Victim Services Division (CVSD) is to assist in the compassionate and effective delivery of crime victim services by offering information, resources, funding and education to crime victims and the organizations that assist them. The CVSDís regional training and outreach program performs an integral role in the success of our mission.
In addition to the CVSDís main business office located in Austin, Texas, CVSD maintains five other offices in different regional cities expanding across Texas. In each office a CVSD Regional Coordinator is staffed to exclusively provide crime victim services. In totality, our victim services regional outreach program expands across every county in Texas!

The CVSD Regional Coordinators offer Crime Victimsí Compensation training and curriculum to prosecutorís offices, law enforcement, victim assistance groups and providers of services. They also assist with researching and responding to questions from victims, victim advocacy groups, prosecutorís offices, and law enforcement agencies. At request, the Regional Coordinator may provide direct victim assistance to victims and their families.
The Regional Coordinators are also available to participate in your local task forces, coalitions and regional events such as the Tree of Angels and National Crime Victims Rights Week. You may contact your local Regional Coordinator to schedule CVSD to participate in your upcoming event, conduct an anticipated training or to provide CVC assistance.
