The new center is located at 201 West Main Street, between the Latino Credit Union and the Hispanic Center.

The Center will be open three days a week:

  • Mondays: 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
  • Wednesdays: 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
  • Fridays: Noon-8 p.m.
  • Gonzalez, who is bilingual, will be at the Victims Assistance Center during these hours.

    Victim assistance services are also provided at Durham Police Headquarters.
