OVS-VSU Project

The OVS-VSU project refers to the partnership between Ottawa Victim Services and the Victim Support Unit through the Ottawa Police Service.  This partnership allows police-based victim services to work alongside community-based victim services to provide crisis intervention, practical assistance and emotional support to victims of crime. OVS’ Case Manager sits in the Victim Support Unit and triages police reports and can connect victims of crime to Ottawa Victim Services for further supports, with consent. This partnership ensures more victims and survivors across Ottawa receive support services after being impacted by crime.
