VictimCONNECT Deputy Manager  of Data and Technology

The National Center for Victims of Crime is designing, implementing, and managing VictimCONNECT, an innovative national service aimed at bridging the gap between crime victims and the services available to help them recover. Combining a traditional telephone-based helpline with a web and online chat interface, VictimCONNECT will provide a single national comprehensive crime victim information, assistance and referral service. This service will customize and improve an existing victims’ assistance technology and leverage the National Center for Victims of Crime’s resources.

The Deputy Manager of the VictimCONNECT Helpline will share the day-to-day responsibility of running this new Helpline service with the Manager, with particular responsibility for the integrity and quality of the data and technology. The initial phase of the project, approximately nine months long, will be developing the software and database technology for an integrated telephone/web/online-chat advice and referral service that meets the required standards of service, safety, and privacy for victims. When the service goes live, the Deputy Manager will have primary responsibility for upgrading and maintaining the information and referral database and the telephone/web/online-chat platforms.

Duties and Responsibilities

The Deputy Manager will ensure quality crime victim services by:

  • Working with the software developers to customize existing software to create a quality user experience for all types of crime victims accessing the service.

  • Assisting the Program Manager to develop technology and data training, and ongoing professional development for the Victim Assistance Specialists who will staff the phone and web chat lines.

  • Assisting the Program Manager to manage scheduling of staff and ensuring the Helpline is sufficiently staffed.

  • Coordinating with software developers and national Center policy staff to maintain, update and continuously improve the VictimCONNECT database and web interface for accurate and relevant referrals to local resources and a high quality user experience.

  • Tracking, compiling and analyzing the telephone traffic, interactions, and performance of a national crime victim helpline that receives more than 3,000 telephone calls each month.

  • Developing reports to inform management of helpline trends and overall performance, responding to requests for information from other departments, and fulfilling various requirements of the grant that funds the project.
