It's a valuable resource, and one we hope you'll never need.

A new website aiming to connect crime victims with legal services is now available in Western New York.

The site, which is operated by the State Office of Victim Services, works to educate victims and connect them with resources and legal representation.

The program is being piloted in Erie, Genesee and Niagara Counties and will expand to include more of Upstate and Long Island by the end of 2019.
