A referral system has been set up to direct the victim to other community resources and social service agencies for additional help, for example:
- MH Health
- Clear Concepts
- State Health Center
- Area Agency on Aging
The Crime Victim Compensation Board is a state agency which reimburses crime victims for out-of-pocket expenses, loss of earnings, or funeral and burial costs. Crime Victim Services will assist victims in applying for compensation.
Appropriate consideration of the victim’s rights results in better cooperation with law enforcement, help to restore the victim’s confidence and, therefore, makes the system work more effectively.
