Restitution

Restitution is money ordered by the court to reimburse a victim for the actual loss or damage resulting from a crime. It is one way the offender can make up for the harm caused to the victim. To learn about restitution, download our restitution brochure.

Victim Services Complaints Process

The Victims’ Bill of Rights provides a complaints process for victims who feel they have not been treated fairly by the justice system. The complaints process allows you to have the director of Victim Services investigate your complaint. Because of your complaint, the agency may introduce new procedures to correct future problems. Making a complaint cannot change the outcome of a case.
