Office of Crime Victim Services
If you are the victim of a crime, the Office of Crime Victim Services (OCVS) is here to help. OCVS houses many resources and programs for crime victims, family and friends, and professionals in the victim service field.
Justice isn’t served until crime victims are.
Visit the Crime Victim Compensation page for more information on compensation available for certain financial losses after the crime.
Safe at Home: Wisconsin’s Address Confidentiality Program is a resource for those who fear for their safety to be able to maintain a private confidential home, work, or school address.
The Victim Resource Center is staffed by professionals to assist with questions about the rights afforded to victims and witnesses of crime as they move through the criminal justice process, and what to do if a victim or witness believes a right has been violated.
Utilize the Information for Victims & Families section to locate domestic violence and sexual assault agencies, a guide to the criminal justice system, and resources on healing.
The Office of Crime Victim Services Grant Programs manages and administers a number of federal grant programs and state funding streams, such as Victims of Crime Act (VOCA), Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), Sexual Assault Victim Services (SAVS), State Child Advocacy Center Grants, and Children's Justice Act.
