U.S. Attorney's Office

Even when the community does not have the time to create a coalition, the responsibilities of the U.S. Attorney's Office (USAO) do not change. Its relationship instead will be with the victim service and/or nonprofit organization that takes the lead in the CCTV broadcast community.

Each of the 93 USAOs has a unit dedicated to victims and witnesses to inform them about their specific rights under federal law and assist them in contacting people who provide medical, social, and counseling services.
