How you can helpVictim Support

Together SA CAN was launched in January 2003 with the goal of uniting all emergency service role-players into South Africa’s “911 emergency system”. We can now proudly say that we have a base of over 1.5 million members. Our strength is in our network of over 100 united organisations, each one expert in their field, across all services from SAPS, The Hawks, Metro Police, Security Companies, Fire and Rescue, Advanced Life Support and Medical Services, Animal Welfare, Wildlife and Raptor Rescue (AWR), Flight Operations, Municipal Services, Crisis Centres, NGO’s, Neighbourhood Watch and Farm Watches.

The next step in our journey has been a team decision taken under the guidance of the Hawks and National SAPS for the development of a dedicated platform and activation process for Specialised Victim Support (SVS) in high priority crimes. 

The SVS platform takes into account the various crucial needs when dealing with the process of priority crimes and is designed to support the complete lifespan of a priority case from the time of the incident until finalisation of the case, including the initial 72-hour response plan, operational support, victim support and communications. It tracks and supports all role-players from the time of the incident to the integration of the prisoner/s back into society – a period generally spanning some 25 to 30 years.
