Victims Services Unit

Mason County formed a Victim Services Unit in 1997 and is part of a state-wide program.

Michigan is the only state in the nation that provides this service in each county.

Members of the Victim Services Unit represent a broad cross-section of Mason County residents and live within our communities. Each member is trained by the Michigan Sheriffs’ Association and is Directed by the Mason County Sheriff to provide short-term crisis intervention.
