Increasing Restitution for Crime Victims: A Toolkit

| December 9, 2011

The National Center for Victims of Crime recently released a “Restitution Toolkit,” which provides state agencies and external organizations information on instituting or furthering restitution opportunities for crime victims. The information is in-depth and comprehensive, including:

Right on Crime has continuously advocated for stronger policies ensure the restoration of victims after a crime. In the case of property crimes, especially, putting the victim in the same place they were before the crime occurred should be an integral component of the state’s response. This toolkit could provide a good starting point for jurisdictions seeking to enhance the role of restitution.


RIGHT ON CRIME is a national campaign to promote successful, conservative solutions on American criminal justice policy—reforming the system to ensure public safety, shrink government, and save taxpayers money. By sharing research and policy ideas and mobilizing strong conservative voices, we work to raise awareness of the growing support for effective reforms within the conservative movement. We are transforming the debate on criminal justice in America.
