Victim Assistance -
Most of us know someone that has been a victim of a crime. A neighbor, a relative, a friend and sometimes even ourselves. It’s unfortunate, but crimes take place every day. Whether it is an Assault, a Burglary or even a Homicide. Victims of these crimes often need immediate assistance to deal with what has happened. For over 33 years, the Victim Assistance Unit of the Glendale Police Department has been there to help. A large part of our assistance comes from interested volunteers that want to give back to their communities and lend a helping hand.
