Restitution Working Group

Legislatively Created Restitution Working Group


In 2013, the Minnesota Legislature directed the Department of Public Safety (DPS) to convene a working group to study how restitution for victims in criminal cases is requested, ordered, and collected in Minnesota.  The Restitution Work Group (RWG) met from October 2013 to August 2014. and the final Restitution Working Group Report to the Legislature was submitted in January 2015. As part of this effort, the State Court Administrator's Office analyzed restitution data to assess the extent of restitution ordered and paid by offenders.
