Sequoyah County Sheriff's Office Victim Service Unit

Since 2017 the Sequoyah County Sheriff's Office has received funding through a Victims of Crime Act grant to employ a full-time Victim Service Specialist to assist and support victims of crime in our county. Our Victim Service Specialist can provide advocacy that may include:

  • Crisis intervention
  • Safety planning
  • Emotional support
  • Case status updates
  • Notification of victim rights
  • Assist victims of crime when applying for emergency protective orders
  • Provide information about and referrals to other service providers
  • Court accompaniment

Victim Rights - As a victim of a crime, pursuant to the Oklahoma Constitution Article 2, ยง 34, you have certain rights.

Crime Victims Compensation Program - The purpose of the Crime Victims Compensation Act is to provide a method of compensation for victims of violent crime. All funds come from federal and state offenders through fines and penalty assessments. An arrest of the offender does NOT have to take place in order to be eligible to file a claim; however, the victim and/or claimant is expected to fully cooperate in the apprehension, investigation, and prosecution of the perpetrator. The claimant is also expected to fully cooperate with the District Attorney's Office and Victims Compensation Board staff during the processing of the claim.

VINELink - To receive electronic updates about the custody status of an offender held in a county jail or the Oklahoma Department of Corrections, visit the VINELink website at or download the app on your smartphone in the iTunes or Google Play store, just search VINELink.
