Helpline staff is available Monday – Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.,
at 1-800-822-8428 or by email at OVS@jud.ct.gov
The victim services advocates who answer the Helpline also provide support to personal injury crime victims
and their family members and family members of homicide victims at Sentence Review Hearings.
