Victims of crime in North Carolina have special rights to know more about their case and seek restitution. Our Victim Assistance Coordinator can talk to victims, connect them with community/campus resources and tell them how to find out about eligibility for financial assistance, medical care and lost wages.
The victim assistance program is dedicated to assist any UNCG student, staff or faculty who falls victim of a crime or traumatic incident. Ensuring that victims of crimes investigated by the UNCG Police Department are afforded the opportunity to receive the services and notification as required by federal law and the Attorney General Guidelines on Victim and Witness Assistance, we empower our community to restore lives impacted by crisis, violence, and tragedy.
In accordance with North Carolina G.S. §15A-830 you are entitled to the rights listed below, part of which our agency is responsible for notifying you.
