Child Pornography Victim Assistance (CPVA)

The CPVA program was established to ensure that victims of child pornography and their guardians can exercise their rights each time their images are included in a federal criminal case and to ensure that victims have access to victim assistance services no matter how much time has passed since the original abuse took place. The Office for Victim Assistance serves as the central repository for contact information, notification preference, and victim impact statement submission preference for identified victims in child pornography cases. CPVA also responds to requests from federal investigative agencies and prosecutors who are working cases that involve images of these children.
