Crime Prevention and Victim Resources
Crime prevention is always more desirable than prosecuting crimes after they occur, and crime victims often need various types of assistance after a verdict is reached or a plea deal is brokered. This section includes articles and lists of resources pertaining to crime prevention and crime victims, including links to national and local nongovernmental agencies providing advocacy on behalf of victims and links to federal agencies. You will also find an overview of neighborhood watch programs, which engage community members in the prevention of neighborhood crime; an explanation of self-defense; how restitution works; the meaning and legality of a citizen’s arrest; and more.
