U.S. Marine Major Michael R. Schulz is the Regional Victim and Witness Liaison Officer (RVWLO). The Installation Victim and Witness Liaison Officer (IVWLO) for MCB Camp Lejeune is currently vacant, but acts as the Commanding Officer, MCIEAST and MCB Camp Lejeune’s manager for the VWAP Program aboard the installation, respectively. In that capacity, the IVWLO chairs the VWAP Council, manages and maintains a list of all unit Victim Witness Assistance Coordinators and other base Victim Witness Service Providers, provides liaison with local civilian services for victims of crime, tracks all services provided and is the central point-of-contact for the base program.

Pursuant to Marine Corps Directives, each office or agency which provides services to victims and witnesses (see list below) appoints a Victim Witness Assistance Representative and each unit (Battalion and Squadron level and above) appoints a Victim Witness Assistance Coordinator (VWAC).  The VWAC and other representatives are responsible for that unit or office’s part of the base VWAP.
