FAQ: Question & Answer
How can I learn about effective victim service programs?
The CrimeSolutions.gov website uses rigorous research to inform practitioners and policymakers about what works in crime victim services, as well as criminal and juvenile justice. Visit the Victims & Victimization section of the site to view research on program effectiveness reviewed and rated by CrimeSolutions.gov Researchers and Reviewers.
CrimeSolutions.gov was created by the Office of Justice Programs (OJP) and is operated by OJP's National Institute of Justice.
Also visit the OVC-funded Center for Victim Research. The Center provides access to victim research and data and seeks to improve the utility of research and data collection to crime victim services.
Agencies that receive Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) funds also have complimentary access to the Center's collection subscription-based journal articles. Visit the Center for Victim Research Registration page and then click on “VOCA-Funded Agencies.” Once you are registered as a VOCA-Funded Agency, you will be able to search for both open-access and subscription resources.
