Crime and traumatic events often happen with no warning. No one can ever be prepared for the impact a criminal or traumatic event will have on them. The sudden nature of these events often leaves victims and survivors feeling confused, overwhelmed, scared, angry, and alone.
In communities across British Columbia police-based victim services professionals are here to help those impacted by criminal or traumatic events navigate the complex criminal legal system and recovery process.
Police Victim Services of British Columbia (PVSBC) is a provincial non-profit association and federally registered charity, dedicated to serving the needs of police-based victim services programs. As the oldest and one of the largest police victim services associations in Canada, PVSBC provides leadership, support, advocacy and training to professionals working in the field of victim services.
