National Crime Victims' Rights Week, April 23 - 29, 2023

The Office of Victim and Restorative Justice Services (OVRJP) is a source of support, information, and services based on the principles of Restorative Justice.

The OVRJP offers ways for victims to be involved in the decisions made about an offender’s liberties within the criminal justice system.   

The OVRJP is supported by the Department of Corrections Victim Advisory Council (VAC). VAC is made up of victims and victim advocates, survivors, criminal justice professionals, and interested community members.
