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.

Counterfeit Pills

Investigators believe Prince thought he was taking Vicodin, turns out those pills were laced with Fentanyl that killed the Minnesota icon.

Statewide gang and drug coordinator Brian Marquart recently spoke with KSTP about the enormous risks when buying counterfeit pills off the street as buyers have no way of knowing what they are getting, and it could be deadly.

If you are addicted to pills, seek help, if you know a loved one who is an addict, encourage them to seek treatment.
