County announces opening of office
to serve senior victims of crime
In anticipation of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week on April 2-8, Delaware County Councilmen Dave White and John McBlain joined District Attorney Jack Whelan and Chelsey Price, Director of Senior Victim Services of the District Attorney’s Office, with local law enforcement and senior advocates to announce the grand opening of the newly renovated office for Senior Victim Services located just a block away from the Delaware County Courthouse on S.

With a focus to assist senior residents in Delaware County, advocates of the District Attorney’s Senior Victim Services work with detectives and prosecutors to provide advocacy, assistance, and safety within the criminal justice system. Advocates also work with social service agencies and community organizations to restore the lives of victims and prevent further victimization.
