Local Nonprofit Service Agency

In lieu of a community coalition, a victim service or nonprofit organization should be identified to coordinate a minimal level of services, including—

  • Locating and securing a safe meeting space.
  • Recruiting and screening professionals as volunteers for a multidisciplinary support team during debriefings.
  • Identifying, and possibly providing, a local site coordinator who will be responsible for implementing direct services.

The U.S. Attorney liaison will most likely be responsible for coordinating with the USAO as to who will provide legal debriefings for victims attending CCTV broadcasts and accessing support services. To ensure standardized, seamless support services to victims at multiple CCTV sites, a cooperative and supportive relationship between the U.S. Attorney liaison and the local coordinating service organization is critical. Volunteer management may not be needed depending on the types of services offered and the ability of the coordinating agency to provide the services.
