The Delaware County Juvenile Court Victim Services Program was established in 1987 to provide information and support for victims of juvenile crime and to ensure that case related decisions include greater consideration for the victim. The program is committed to protecting victims of juvenile crime by informing them of their rights, providing information regarding the Court’s legal process, arranging support for personal and emotional needs, and attempting to help recover any financial losses. Keeping sight of a “balanced approach” ensures that offenders are held accountable to their victims and that the victims regain some degree of wholeness after an offense has been committed against them.
