What the "System" will do for you if you are a victim

  • You will be given complete attention and care by the UAB Police and the University in assisting you in overcoming your being a victim.
  • You will be advised of all the professional protocols taken before they occur and each will be explained to you as they occur to ensure you remain comfortable and knowledgeable of the criminal justice system.
  • An Investigator or a Victim's Assistance Officer (usually a female Officer) and other professionals will be assigned to your case to ensure it is expeditiously carried out and handled in the most supportive, sensitive and empathetic manner as possible.
  • Your department employs trained Victim Witness Coordinators that are available to help you should you become a victim. We are a Department fully committed to community policing, education and social programming.
  • "To be or not to be..." should not be the question when it comes to being a victim. Be proactive and aware and join us in minimizing crime. Join us in making UAB a safe place to work, live and play.
