CPPD Victim Services Division
Welcome to the Cedar Park Police Department Victim Services Division page. We invite you to read on to learn more about what we do and who we are. We also encourage you to reach out to us if we can be of help.
The Cedar Park Police Department Victim Services Division is committed to protecting the rights and providing services to victims of ciolent crime. Our primary goal is to minimize the trauma that can occur as a result of a criminal act. We work with victims to address those issues through crisis intervention, advocacy, education and information referral.
A Victim's Advocate is on call 24/7 every day of the year. These Advocates are Cedar Park citizens who have been trained to provide comprehensive and immediate support to survivors of domestic/family violence, adult and child sexual assault, child/elder abuse, stalking, assault, homicide, suicide, and crisis intervention. We understand that crime and violence affects individuals, families and survivors in a variety of ways. In order to meet those needs, we offer numerous types of services, resources/referrals and information.
We would like to hear from you if you have questions or are seeking services and support. Please contact the Cedar Park Police Department Victim Services Coordinator:
