Victim Resources

The period following a crime can be very stressful and confusing to deal with, but there is help. Feel free to contact the Cottage Grove Police Department anytime day or night if you have questions or concerns. Our department can assist you with making contact with domestic counseling, crisis intervention, juvenile assistance programs, victim assistance programs and other human services. For more information see Dane County Victim Witness Unit.

VINELink & The Office of Victim Services

VINELink is a free national service that allows crime victims to obtain information about criminal cases and the custody status of offenders 24 hours a day. Also in Wisconsin, crime victims and witnesses have rights providing certain privileges and protections. The Office of Crime Victim Services can help you understand these rights and help you access the services you need.
