Crime victim Compensation

The State of Arizona has a Crime Victim Compensation Program that offers financial help to victims of crime. Claims are awarded by a local Crime Victim Compensation Board in each county. An innocent victim or a secondary victim (a person who is affected by the crime) may apply for help with out-of-pocket costs in the county in which the crime took place. Funds to pay these claims come from fees and fines paid by convicted defendants. This program is administered at the state level by the:

Arizona Criminal Justice Commission
1110 W Washington Ste# 230
Phoenix, AZ 85007
(602) 364-1146
1-877-668-2252
