Information for Law Enforcement

Our Permission Slip Program is an early intervention outreach tool for Montgomery County Police Departments, the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office, and other services organizations to help people connect people to VSC. 

Connecting people to VSC as early as possible can help a survivor receive emotional support as they navigate each step of the reporting and criminal justice process. 


How it works 

Organizations that work with survivors ask the individual to sign a release, allowing the victim's contact information to be shared with VSC. The permission slip is then emailed or faxed to VSC, and a specially trained victim advocate reaches out to offer emotional support, provide information about options, and share information about VSC services. 

VSC needs the following information to assist and reach out to the victim: 

  • Victim name, address, date of birth, and primary language spoken  

  • Type of incident or victimization that took place

  • Date of the incident or victimization  

  • A safe phone number to contact the victim
