“Law Enforcement’s Role in Supporting Crime Victims’ Access to Compensation”

The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), the Police Foundation, and the National Center for Victims of Crime are proud to present “Law Enforcement’s Role in Supporting Crime Victims’ Access to Compensation.”

The primary goal of the project is to develop and deliver training, technical assistance, and resources to law enforcement to support crime victims’ access to compensation. Additionally, the project emphasizes an understanding of the current state of practice to identify gaps in the process attributable to law enforcement such as ensuring that investigative reports are filed in a timely manner and include the information necessary to meet state eligibility requirements.

Resources include:

• Training videos for first responders, investigators, and law enforcement leadership with companion guides
• A list of frequently asked questions about victim compensation
• A palm card with information on victim compensation that can be customized to your jurisdiction
