Carrollton Police Department’s Victims’ Services Unit

The Carrollton Police Department's Victims Services Unit provides crisis intervention, information and referral to community resources, assistance with Emergency Protective Orders, and help in applying for Crime Victims' Compensation. We do not provide counseling or therapy, but will refer you to a counselor or therapist at your request. Not everything you disclose is confidential since your police report is subject to open records requests. If you disclose intentions to harm yourself or anyone else or if you make disclosures about abuse to a child, disabled person or elderly person, we must make a report to the appropriate regulatory agency. We reserve the right to call any appropriate person or entity to prevent harm to you or to any third party. Decisions to follow up on referrals are up to the victim/witness.
