Pursuant to Arizona Supreme Court Administrative Order No. 2020-75; all court participants and visitors must wear their own mask, or other face-covering when entering the courthouse. Visitors who report to the courthouse without a face-covering will be denied entry. In addition, a COVID-19 screening protocol has been implemented, which may include body temperature screening. Persons who refuse to cooperate with, or do not pass established screening protocols, or refuse to wear a mask or face covering shall be excluded from entering the courthouse.
The Pinal County Attorney’s Office strives to ensure that victims of crime are treated with fairness, respect, and dignity through its Victims Services programs. The Pinal County Attorney’s Office is staffed with victim advocates and legal assistants dedicated to ensuring victims’ rights are upheld and assisting victims of crime in navigating the criminal/juvenile justice system. Advocates provide victims with information on the many valuable resources offered by the community. Before charges are formally filed against a suspect, the victim will need to speak with the reporting law enforcement agency for updates on the incident. After charges are formally filed, a victim advocate is assigned to assist you with your case. In addition to serving victims of crime, advocates are available to provide domestic violence awareness training to the community.
The Pinal County Attorney’s Office has taken a very strong position on victims’ rights and is constantly seeking ways to improve the services we provide to crime victims. All victims of crime should be treated with fairness, respect, and dignity. As such, we have created a survey Victim Satisfaction Survey geared toward your experience with our Victim Advocates and Court Facility Dog team. Responses are utilized to improve processes, the services we provide, and to recognize those employees who perform above and beyond expectations. We also use this information for grant reporting purposes and responses can determine whether we will receive future funding. If you have any additional comments regarding the Victim Services Division, please provide those in the comments section at the bottom of the survey.
