Victim Rights/Parallel Justice

The Redlands Police Department is committed to protecting and advocating for victims of crime. The RPD has officially embraced Parallel Justice as one of the Department's five core initiatives and added the language “helping victims rebuild their lives” to the Department's list of organizational guidelines to send a clear message, both internally and to the public, that this approach comes from the top and should be taken seriously.
Police Chief Mark Garcia has used his role as a leader in the community to widen the circle of resources that police can draw upon to help crime victims. He has met with other leaders in local government, such as the mayor and the district attorney, to discuss the Police Department's approach to helping crime victims and garner support for a larger initiative. He has also reached out to the non-profit service community and in the business community to build understanding of and support for victims' needs.

 

Businesses Helping Victims

Several local businesses are participating in a new program to reduce costs and address the immediate needs of victims of crime. These business partners offer discounts on goods and services related to the impact of the crime. In order to participate in the program, the victim needs to give the business their Redlands Police Department case number which will enable the business to confirm that the individual is being helped by the Parallel Justice Initiative. To see what your business can do to help support crime victims in our community, contact Commander Travis Martinez at (909) 557-6583 or by email at tmartinez@redlandspolice.org.
