Services for Victims of Crime

We are here to help victims of crimes by providing support, information and referrals.

We understand that it is essential to be there when you or someone you know is a victim of a crime. Victims of crimes have rights under the law.


Who is a Crime Victim?

Under Minnesota law, a crime victim is defined as a person who incurs loss or harm as a result of a crime. A victim includes the family member, guardian, or custodian of a minor, incompetent, incapacitated, or deceased person. Minnesota Statutes section 611A, subdivision 1


What is the requirement to provide notice of rights to victims?

Law enforcement agencies are required to notify victims of certain victim rights and local resources at initial contact. Prosecutors are required to provide a notice of rights to victims once charges have been filed. Minnesota Statutes section 611A, subdivision 2.
