Victim of Crime
Guide to the Law for Victims of Crime in San Francisco
If you or someone you know is a victim of a crime, or someone has threatened to harm you or otherwise commit a crime against you, you have various rights in California and San Francisco. But keep in mind that you may need to be proactive in exercising your rights as a victim.
Start here to report a crime in California, or go to the local SFPD police station. You may also need to contact and follow up with the San Francisco District Attorney, or if it’s a federal crime, the local United States Attorney or “U.S. Attorney.”
