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. The following are a list of resources relied on by the RWG, the documents and materials generated during the process, and the final Restitution Working Group Report to the Legislature.
