· An opportunity to talk about what happened
· Accompaniment to meetings, court hearings, etc. to serve as a liaison
· Referrals to campus, community and state resources
· Provide information to help with deciding on a course of action
· Planning for your future safety and that of your friends through workshops and presentations
To reach the Victim Advocate, simply call 737-1466, send an email, firstname.lastname@example.org or ask any ECU police officer to contact her on your behalf. She is available anytime someone is in need and any conversations are private and do not commit you to any future action. The Victim Advocate is on call and services are available 24 hours, seven days a week.
