Victim Services

The victim services function of the Yale University Police Department is designed to offer help and support to victims of crime. Victim services are provided and facilitated by the Investigative Services Unit. The Unit acts as liaison with the State’s Office of Victim Services, which administers the Victim Compensation Program. The Investigative Services Unit works with the courts on behalf of the victims, keeping the victim informed on the proceedings, and counseling the victim on his or her rights. For more information on the Yale University Police Department’s Victim Services program, please contact the Investigative Services Coordinator at 203-432-8770.
