MCB Camp Pendleton VWAP

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

Major Steven Evans, U.S. Marine Corps is the Victim and Witness Liaison Officer (VWLO) for Marine Corps Installion West - MCB Camp Pendleton and acts as the Commanding General, MCIWEST-MCB Campen's manager for the Victim-Witness Assistance Program (VWAP) aboard the installation.  In that capacity, the VWLO chairs the VWAP Council, manages and maintains a list of all unit Victim Witness Assistance Coordinators (VWAC) and other base 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 base 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 VWAC. The VWAC and other representatives are responsible for that unit or office’s part of the station VWAP.
