Mobile Operations Victim Emergency Services
(M.O.V.E.S)

The M.O.V.E.S. Program has on-call paralegals who assist victims of domestic violence. The paralegals respond to domestic violence arrest cases immediately after the crime to help the victims regain control of their lives by assessing their needs, taking sworn statement of the incident, providing a safety plan and appropriate referral information available in the community.

The paralegals are on-call Monday through Friday from 5:00 pm to 5:00 am, and available 24 hours on Weekends and Holidays. This early intervention also helps build better cases for prosecution and provides our prosecutors with the necessary tools to make decisions about each case, improving the probability of successful prosecution.
