MIDDLESEX COUNTY PROSECUTOR'S OFFICE
VICTIM ADVOCACY CENTER

Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce Kaplan, in an effort to coordinate and integrate the services provided to the citizens of this county, has created the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office Victim Advocacy Center. The Center is the first of its kind to address the needs of not only child victims of physical and sexual abuse, but also adult sexual assault victims, domestic violence victims, families of homicide victims, and families of fatal accident victims, under one roof. The Victim Advocacy Center fosters a partnership between the various disciplines serving the community. This cooperative effort helps eliminate further traumatization and embarrassment of victims. The Center has a child-friendly waiting area and interview room. In addition, the Advocacy Center has an adult waiting area and interview room. Both interview rooms have video/audio- taping capabilities.

The Center houses and/or has space for:

  • Representatives from the Sex Crimes/Child Abuse Unit of the Prosecutor's Office
  • Representatives from the Domestic Violence Unit of the Prosecutor's Office
  • The Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS)
  • Local police departments
  • The Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Program (SANE)/Sexual Assault Response Team (SART)
  • The Dorothy B. Hersh Child Protection Center (CPC)
  • The Rape Crisis Intervention Center of Middlesex County (RCIC)
  • Women Aware
  • UMDNJ Child Crisis Intervention Services

The safe and friendly environment of the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office Victim Advocacy Center addresses the needs of diverse populations of victims, better serving our county community.
