MetadataShow full item record
This report on crime victims services is the result of a policy research project conducted in 1989-90 under a grant from the Office of the Governor of Texas, Criminal Justice Division. The Office of the Governor designated the Criminal Justice Policy Council as the coordinator to assist in the project. The Texas Crime Victim's Clearinghouse also participated in the design of the study. The research was designed to assist in the development of criteria for the allocation of resources to crime victims. It also represents a pilot study to delineate the difficulties in undertaking research on crime victims. This report presents the results of interviews with over 200 victims of crime. The findings of the project are intended to assist in the development of both future research studies on crime victims and assessments of the relative needs of different types of crime victims.
