Victim Witness Assistance

Brochures and Information

The Victim Witness Assistance Unit of the District Attorney’s Office is responsible for providing direct support and notification services to victims and witnesses of felony criminal acts that occur in Cobb County.

Our work allows victims of crime to have a voice in, participate in, and be notified of events related to the criminal case. Responsibilities of an intern/volunteer will include but are not limited to contacting victims and witnesses regarding court dates and case status, helping in determining restitution and completing victims compensation forms, attending court with victims and witnesses, contacting law enforcement officers to advise of court matters, and assisting with scheduling court appearances.
