The Victim and Witness Assistance Program (VWAP) is designed to ensure victims and witnesses of crime are treated with fairness and dignity and are afforded their rights throughout the criminal justice process – from the first report of a crime through any period of confinement adjudged by a court-martial.

The Marine Corps VWAP instruction is MCO 5800.16

Chief Warrant Officer-2 (CWO2) San Diego is the Victim and Witness Liaison Officer (VWLO) for MCAS Miramar and acts as the Commanding Officer, MCAS Miramar's manager for the VWAP Program aboard the station.  In that capacity, CWO2 San Diego chairs the VWAP Council, manages and maintains a list of all unit Victim Witness Assistance Coordinators and other station Victim Witness Representatives, provides liaison with local civilian services for victims of crime, tracks all services provided and is the central point of contact for the station program.

Pursuant to Marine Corps Directives, each office or agency which provides services to victims and witnesses (see list below) appoints a Victim Witness Assistance Representative and each unit (Battalion and Squadron level and above) appoints a Victim Witness Assistance Coordinator (VWAC).  The VWAC and other representatives are responsible for that unit or office's part of the station VWAP.
