Police-Based Victim Services Program Search Tool

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.

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 in BC. PVSBC provides leadership, support, advocacy and training to professionals working in the field of victim services.

Police-based victim services programs can be found in communities across BC. To find a service in your community, search the PVSBC Program Directory.
