Victim Services Program

The Michigan State Police (MSP) Victim Services Program (VSP) is designed to increase interaction between crime victims and law enforcement and reduce further trauma to victims.

Currently, there are Victim Advocates at the First District serving the Lansing Post and Brighton Post, the Second District serving the Metro North Post and Metro South Post, the Third District serving the Flint Post and Tri-City Post, the Fifth District serving the Paw Paw Post and Marshall Post, the Sixth District serving the Grand Rapids Post and Lakeview Post, the Seventh District serving the Traverse City Post and Gaylord Post, and the Eighth District serving the Negaunee Post and Iron Mountain Post. Victims are referred to Victim Advocates by troopers handling cases. Due to staff limitation, Victim Advocates only work with victims of MSP cases.

Advocates provide trauma-informed, victim-centered criminal justice support, referrals to community services, and advocacy to those impacted by criminal circumstances; ensure the availability of consistent and comprehensive information to crime victims regarding the constitutional and statutory rights of crime victims; and build relationships with community members, colleagues, and other professionals in such a way as to promote mutual respect and public confidence.

If you have received services from a Victim Advocate, we'd love to gather feedback on your experience.
