Crime Victim’s Services

What happens to victims of crime after they make a report?

In Robertson County, we have a Crime Victim Liaison available to educate and assist them in their journey.

Texas requires all law enforcement agencies to have a Liaison to assist and work with crime victims. In 2007, Robertson County received a grant from the Office of the Attorney General to operate this program part-time.  In 2009, the program was funded full-time by the grant and later by the county.

The goal of the Victim Assistance Program is to:

  • assist victims of crime
  • protect and advocate the rights of victims
  • provide necessary information
  • prevent further victimization

Crime victims who make a report are subsequently contacted by phone, mail or in person. The liaison will inform victims about procedures, community resources, and available programs that will assist victims during the aftermath of a crime. The liaison is also on call to respond to after-hour emergencies, and to provide assistance.

Oftentimes, crime victims want to know what will happen next, and the liaison is available to answer those questions. She can provide case status, information about the criminal justice system, court and hospital accompaniment, and emergency transportation to women shelters or other safe locations.

Depending on the type of crime that has occurred, victims can receive information on shelters, counseling services or referrals to support and social service agencies. The liaison can also assist with information about parole notification and assist with a parole protest.

The liaison may also contact crime victims to determine their eligibility for financial assistance from Crime Victim’s Compensation and assist in completing the application process.  The Crime Victims' Compensation Fund - paid out of court costs generated by criminal convictions - provides for medical bills, counseling, lost wages, funeral expenses and other crime related expenses without any cost to taxpayers.


So WHO is Robertson County Sheriff's Office's

Crime Victim's Liaison?

Please meet Christina Sechelski.  Christina has been a part of Robertson County Sheriff's Office since March 2019. 

Chris works closely with the Office of the Attorney General and local law enforcement over to maintain a system by which she is able to assist law enforcement and serve many victims of crime that otherwise would likely receive little or no services simply because of the overwhelming number of victims that law enforcement encounter.
