According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics’ National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), 3.3 million U.S. residents age 12 or older were victims of violent crime in 2018. U.S. households also experienced an estimated 13.5 million property victimizations, which include burglaries, residential trespassing, motor-vehicle thefts, and other thefts.

Crime Trackers Massachusetts Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) is committed to assisting crime victims and to providing leadership in changing attitudes, policies, and practices to promote justice and healing for all victims of crime.

The Victim Advocate program involves a full-time coordinator and six volunteers. It was formed to meet the needs of citizens of Massachusetts who become victims of crime, and to survivors of those who have lost their lives due to a violent act.

Advocates are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to respond to the scene, hospital, or police station if they are needed immediately. They provide crisis intervention, transportation to domestic violence shelters or a Rape Crisis Center, or to make death notifications.
