Victims Assistance Program

The Victim Assistance Program provides victims of crime with assistance in recovering physically, emotionally and financially from criminal acts against them: sexual assault, robbery, kidnapping, domestic violence, and aggravated assault. Family members who have suffered a loss will be offered emotional support and assistance.

Our goal is to improve the consideration and treatment of the victim by providing direct service to them or making referrals to the appropriate community agency. If you have been the victim of a crime, there are services available to assist you. To be eligible for program services, the crime must have been reported to Fayetteville State University Police Department and must have occurred within the City Limits of Fayetteville. If you are a victim of crime, but do not meet the above criteria, the Victim Advocate will provide you with appropriate referrals.These services range from counseling, referrals, assistance with legal paperwork, medical attention, and emergency shelter.

If you have been the victim of a crime, contact the FSU Police Department's Investigations Division at 910-672-2486 or 910-671-1775 to speak with an officer about your needs.
