Victim & Witness Assistance Program (VWAP)

Program Overview

VWAP is a multi-disciplinary model, designed to identify and assist victims and witnesses of crime through the criminal justice process, beginning at the initial report of a crime and continuing through the investigation, prosecution, sentencing, confinement and release of the accused offender.  Victims and witnesses have the right to be treated with fairness and respect for their dignity, privacy, and to be reasonably protected from the offender.  The impact of crimes is devastating to innocent victims, witnesses, and their families. VWAP is designed to minimize the effects of crime and to help victims and witnesses understand and participate in the military justice system. The VWAP ensures that Navy personnel are trained to provide appropriate information, referrals, and services.
