Rights and Services Available to Victims of Crime in Pennsylvania

The Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency's Office of Victims’ Services (OVS) ensures that victims of crime get the help they need to transcend their trauma and move forward with their lives.

OVS does this in many ways, including providing financial help through the Victims Compensation Assistance Program (VCAP), administering funding to local and statewide victim service agencies that work directly with victims of crime and training victim service and allied professionals.
