Victim Services

Who we are and what we do

Established in 1992, Victim Services is a Branch of the Hamilton Police Service.  It is the only 24-hour on scene crisis intervention service for victims of crime and trauma in the City of Hamilton.

We respond to the immediate needs of people who have been victimized by crime and/or trauma such as homicides, suicides, sudden death, assaults, sexual assaults, domestic violence, motor vehicle and fire fatalities, robberies and harassment.

Victim Services Branch staff and specially trained volunteers provide practical assistance, emotional support and referrals for additional community resources.

If you or a family member is a victim of crime and/or trauma and you need someone to talk to, please call our 24 hr line at 905-546-4904. We are here to assist you with emotional support, information and community resources.
