The Livingston County Probation Department supports crime victims in a variety of ways. One responsibility includes contacting victims via a Victim Impact Statement, which provides the victim with the opportunity for their voice to be heard by the justice system and/or request restitution. If restitution is requested, the Probation Department provides such information to the Court. Once restitution is ordered, the Probation Officer monitors the payment of restitution, which is then distributed to the victim. In cases where restitution is not a factor, Officers can provide support and/or make referrals to additional services in the community.
The following agencies can be of great asset to all victims:
