    Enhances services to victims and survivors statewide through collaborative strategies.

In the State of Rhode Island, victims of crime have specific rights established by the state legislature. RI General Laws 1956, 12-28-2, states that "in recognition of the responsibility of the community to victims of crime, the general assembly declared its intent to ensure:

    (1) That all crime victims are treated with dignity, respect, and sensitivity at all phases of the criminal justice process.

     (2) That whenever possible, they receive financial compensation for their injury or loss from the perpetrator of the crime; and

     (3) That the full impact of the crime upon the victim is brought to the attention of the court."

The Victims of Crime Helpline is a project of The Network to End Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault. Helpline services include crisis intervention, emotional support, safety planning and advocacy. Trained Helpline advocates assist callers in identifying and accessing appropriate state and local resources and services.

The Victims of Crime Helpline is available to victims, their friends and families, as well as to professionals and other people concerned about the impact of crime on individuals and the community.
