The Carroll County Victim Assistance Program provides services to local crime victims within the Court of Common Pleas, the Municipal Court, and the Juvenile Court.

We assist and support the Carroll County Prosecutor’s Office and the local law enforcement agencies. We also work closely with agencies within the surrounding counties.

Our services are funded by the Victim of Crimes Act (VOCA) and the State Victim’s Assistance Act (SVAA), as well as the local courts and the County Commissioners office.
