Wyoming Crime Victim Bill of Rights
The Teton County Victim Services Program is funded by contributions from the Town of Jackson, Teton County, Victims of Crime Act administered by the Department of Justice Office for Victims of Crime, and surcharge funds collected through the Wyoming Attorney General’s Office Division of Victim Services. Local contributions or donations are used to provide emergency assistance to victims of violent crime.
The Idaho Crime Victims Compensation Program was established in 1986 to provide assistance to innocent victims of crime for financial losses associated with a crime when other resources are not available to cover those expenses.
The program believes that offenders should be held accountable for costs associated with their criminal activity, and actively pursues restitution for crime-related costs.
