There are many obstacles that victims face from the time a crime occurs until the case is adjudicated, and even sometimes thereafter. Having the responsibility of ensuring our victims receive proper services and are treated with dignity and respect during this process and devastating time is truly gives me a servant’s heart. “By compassion, we make others’ misery our own, and so, by relieving them, we relieve ourselves also”.

“My life’s mission is to help others. As a LEVA, I have the privilege of speaking for those that cannot speak for themselves. What a Blessing!”


Training Coordinator


Lieutenant Paula Brewster,

USC Upstate

Ever since my childhood, I would help people who needed help and go out of my way to help someone.  Later on I became a law enforcement officer, I was able to help that in need and provide comfort to them.  So it was a calling for me and I loved it.  I got to see the real impact I was having on people by helping them.  I eventually became a Law Enforcement Victim’s Advocate to continue helping and devote more time and energy to the victims who were affected by criminal activity.

Meeting crime victims where they are in their victimization and treating them with dignity and respect is a special place to be.


Hispanic Liaison


Alma Sierra, Law Enforcement Victim Advocate ,

Georgetown County

I am compassionate about what I do because I believe that everyone has the right to be heard. Being a LEVA and serving as a first responder is rewarding for me because I know I can be that person to make a difference for the victim and family members that afflicted and unable during their time of crisis. I am passionate about what I do and love making a difference in people’s lives! Being a part of the healing process of a broken heart or a broken spirit is what encourages me to wake up every morning and smile. Sometimes that smile is all that someone needs to gain strength and overcome any obstacle. My role as an advocate is a ministry not an occupation!
