Governor Dayton declared April 8-14 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week in Minnesota. The week focused on services and support for those involved in a crime. There are many resources for victims ranging from reparations to restitution.If you don’t know your rights, reach out to law enforcement or the Office of Justice Programs. We are here to help.
Nearly 1,300 Minnesota crime victims received financial assistance by the Department of Public Safety Office of Justice Programs in 2017. Reparations can help crime victims with things such as lost wages, medical costs, counseling and funeral costs.
