Victim/Witness Services

The Lethbridge Police Victim/Witness Services Unit (V/WSU) is a 24/7 police-based victim assistance program that was developed and launched in 1991 to provide information, support and referrals to victims and witnesses of crime or tragedy in Lethbridge. 

Volunteer advocates are first responders who provide practical support during the first few critical hours after a crime or tragedy.

V/WSU serves as a central information point for those who have been victimized, providing updates on the status of an investigation or court case as well as information about victim impact statements, requests for restitution, provincial financial benefits and referrals to counselling services, shelters, child protection and crisis lines.


The Victim/Witness Services Unit is available 24/7, 365 days a year.

Email the V/WSU directly or call 403-330-5176 during regular office hours (Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm).

After hours V/WSU can be contacted through the General Inquiries phone number at 403-327-2210.
