The Calgary Police Service Victim Assistance Support Team (VAST) promotes and advocates the rights and entitlements of victims of crime and trauma. VAST provides assistance to both primary victims (persons who have experienced direct injury, loss or trauma) and secondary victims (those who are impacted by the repercussion of a crime or trauma including witnesses, friends, family and co-workers.) To lessen the effects of a traumatic incident, the Victim Assistance Support Team provides non-judgmental emotional support, a listening ear and practical assistance to victims of crime or tragedy.
