  • Crime Victim Services image

    The Division of Victim Services (DVS) provides one voice advocating for and responding to all victims of crime in Michigan. DVS funds programs that provide comprehensive services to Michigan crime victims, including compensation for injury, counseling, victim advocacy through prosecutors’ offices and non-profit organizations, victims’ rights services, and victim notification through MI-VINE.

    The Division also includes the governor-appointed Michigan Domestic and Sexual Violence Prevention and Treatment Board and the Michigan Crime Victim Services Commission. The Board advises the governor and legislature on issues surrounding domestic and sexual violence, child sexual abuse, and stalking, while the Commission oversees crime victim rights and compensation in Michigan.
