Crime Victims Information

COVID-19 Update: During these uncertain times, DOC Victim Services is still operating under its regular hours remotely and is available to provide assistance.

The Montana Department of Corrections (DOC) believes that once the court process is over, victims and their families should be supported. The DOC's Victim Services team is here to help. Nothing can change what has occurred, but the liaisons hope to provide resources to make the journey ahead more understandable and supportive.

The mission of Victim Services is to inform, involve, educate and empower crime victims while enhancing community safety through positive collaboration. Please allow the Victim Services program to help you in making your voice heard. We're here to help.

“My family has experienced great pain and devastating trauma as the result of the crimes committed against our children….[Working with the DOC victim liaison] was the first time I met someone who was actually primarily concerned with my wishes and with the well-being of my children. Her care, dedication and educated support were and are vital to my family’s recovery.” -Mother of a child sexual assault victim
