Crime Victims Council
The Wisconsin Crime Victims Council is a 15-member body created by the legislature that operates under Wis. Stat. 15.257(2). Council members are appointed to three year staggered terms by the attorney general. Of the fifteen members, ten are citizen appointees, two represent organizations that provide victim services, and one each represents law enforcement, district attorneys and the judiciary.
- The Council develops and implements projects, conducts research, and makes recommendations to the attorney general on public safety issues that impact victims of crime.
- The Council was instrumental in the creation and passage of Wisconsin’s victims’ rights laws and maintains a strong focus on victims' rights implementation issues.
- Every April, the Council co-hosts a Crime Victims Rights Week Ceremony with the Office of the Attorney General to commemorate National Crime Victims Rights Week.
- Council meetings are open to the public.
