About the Victim Services Program

The Victim Services Program (VSP) is funded by State, Federal and County grants to provide assistance to victims of violent crime. The VSP collaborates with law enforcement agencies and other victim services programs to provide assistance to the Reno, Sparks, Carson City and all outlying areas. Assistance is available to all victims, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, gender, tribal affiliation, religion, disability, or sexual orientation.

​If you or someone you know has been victimized, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Victim Services Program for more information and/or assistance.
