Safety Planning- Victim Wrap Around
The Victim Wrap Around, or VWA, is a process initiated when there are specific concerns for a victim's, or other affected person's, safety during the release process of an incarcerated person, or during a parolee's time on supervision. A VWA may also occur when an incarcerated person/parolee has leveled a threat to cause harm to someone and when the danger is imminent.
The goal of a VWA is to create a safety plan that incudes input and resources from a variety of criminal justice professionals in collaboration with a victim or the target of the threat.
A Victim Wrap Around may be initiated by:
1. The target of the threat or a member of the target's family;
2. Corrections staff;
3. Criminal justice professionals; or
4. Community victim advocates.
