Victims and witnesses have the right to be treated with fairness and respect for their dignity, privacy, and to be reasonably protected from the offender.  The impact of crimes is devastating to innocent victims, witnesses, and their families.


When an offender is sentenced to confinement by a court-martial, trial counsel must inform the victims and prosecution witnesses of their notification rights by using a DD 2704 VICTIM/WITNESS CERTIFICATION AND ELECTION CONCERNING PRISONER STATUS.  The trial counsel is required to forward the DD 2704 to the confining PCF at the same time the prisoner is brought to the PCF in all cases where confinement is adjudged.  Victims and witnesses are responsible for notifying the PCF’s Victim & Witness Coordinator (VWC) of any subsequent change in their address or phone number. 

The PCF’s Victim and Witness Assistance Program (VWAP) applies to prisoners of all military services confined in this location.  Navy policy is to enhance the role of victims and witnesses in the military criminal justice system and to ensure all victims and witness are treated with sensitivity, fairness, and respect.  Identity or location data of a victim or witness must not be disclosed to the prisoner or any third party at any time.

The PCF’s VWC will make contact with victims and witnesses notifying them of changes in the prisoner’s status (initial confinement, clemency and parole hearings (if the prisoner is eligible), release dates, permanent transfer, etc.)

As provided for by Federal law, a crime victim has the right to:

  • Be Treated with fairness and respect for the victim's dignity and privacy

  • Be reasonably protected from the accused offender

  • Be notified of court proceedings

  • Be present at all public court proceedings related to the offense, unless the court determines testimony by the victim would be materially affected if the victim heard other testimony at trial.

  • Confer with the attorney for the Government in the case

  • Receive available restitution

  • Be provided information about the conviction, sentencing, imprisonment, and release of the offender

The Role of a Victim Witness Coordinator in Corrections

The PCF’s VWC serves as the point of contact for all victim and prosecution witness assistance questions within PCF Jacksonville and is the subject matter expert on the program, services, laws, and policies.
