A MESSAGE FROM THE

CAMDEN COUNTY PROSECUTOR

The Camden County Prosecutor's Office recognizes its basic duty to protect citizens from violent crime and property crimes. The fact that a criminal act may have been committed by a juvenile does not lessen its impact upon the victim, the victim's family or the community.

Victims of crime may experience emotional trauma, physical pain or financial losses. There may be some confusion regarding the Juvenile Justice System and victims' roles within it. The Office of Victim Witness Advocacy within the Camden County Prosecutor's Office is committed to addressing your special needs, answering your questions and providing information, support, and services as your case proceeds to its conclusion.

The Juvenile Justice System attempts to perform a delicate balancing act between protecting the public and rehabilitating youthful offenders so that their conduct does not become repetitive. The Office of Victim Witness Advocacy seeks to ensure that victims of juvenile offenders are treated with compassion and respect by the Juvenile Justice System.

We hope that the information and services provided in this brochure will be helpful to you as you navigate the Juvenile Justice System.
