The Northeast Regional Victim Service program along with a number of volunteers from all the above communities is being offered from the Carrot River R.C.M.P. Detachment.
The Carrot River Detachment also has a partnership with the Northeast Crisis Center and a counselor regularly attends the office to offer counseling to victims of domestic violence, sexual abuse or for any families in need of counseling.
A community consultative group comprising of citizens from all of the communities meets with members to discuss problematic issues and attempt to solve community problems to avert future acts of vandalism etc.
A number of services are provided to the different communities by the members of the detachment such as-bicycle and car roadeos, detachment tours for school children, ride-along program, SADD program at the High School, assist in ATV and snowmobile courses, school liaison program for every school safety patrol program etc.
The Northeast Regional Victim Services program is an R.C.M.P. affiliated crisis intervention program. The Northeast Regional Victim Services program has been in operation in Nipawin, Carrot River, Melfort and Tisdale since June of 1996. Offices are located in the R.C.M.P. detachments where the bulk of our files are referred from.
Victim Support workers are asked to assist in a variety of situations, some examples are: to accompany the R.C.M.P. when notifying next of kin in the loss of a loved one. In such situations they provide a listening ear, comfort, support, information and any practical help the family may need at that time. Victims Support workers will stay with the individual(s) until family arrives. They remain on call to assist with any other help required. Volunteers are trained to provide appropriate support and assistance in all aspects of crimes against people including domestic violence and sexual assault situations. They provide information regarding case progress, justice procedures, victims of domestic violence act and obtaining peace bonds. Support and assistance is given at the time of the incident, during statements and hospital accompaniment. Referrals are made to shelters and counselors. The impact of property crimes is often much greater than victims anticipate, particularly for the elderly. Volunteers ensure victims receive the support and help appropriate to their needs. For victims that need to testify in court many hours are spent helping them to understand the court process, their role and providing court accompaniment. A further aim of the program is to prevent victimization through education and participating in crime prevention initiatives.
If you need help or more information or wish to volunteer as a Victim Support worker or Board Member please contact your local R.C.M.P. Detachment or call the main office in Tisdale (306-878-3819). The Victim Services website is www.nervs.ca.
- refers to programs in which adults and youths who are accused of a criminal offense take responsibility for their behavior by participating in a community based program. These programs adapt to balance the need of victims, the accused and their communities while ensuring that society is protected. They make the accused person take responsibility for their behavior and to address the harm they have committed.
Alternative Measures are a way to address crime in conjunction with the present criminal justice system. These programs address the criminal actions of the accused while preserving their dignity and requiring them to be accountable for their behavior. It attempts to make things right by taking a problem solving approach to crime, which emphasizes forgiveness and healing while helping to repair relationships between the victim, the accused and the community. A person who is referred to and chooses to participate in the Alternative Measures Program must admit responsibility for the offense. A meeting is then arranged between the victim, the offender and the community members. Each is given an opportunity to express their thoughts and feelings with respect to the offense and with the assistance of a mediator, come to an agreement which each believes is fair. The agreement could involve the offender doing volunteer work for the victim or the community, paying the victim for the damage caused, attending counseling, or any other activity acceptable to all parties. This process often leads to the restoration of harmony between the victim and the offender.
