Are you a victim?

A victim of crime is a person who has suffered physical or emotional injury, or financial loss because of a crime. Victims of crime may have:

  • been injured in a violent attack
  • experienced a sexual assault
  • been the subject of a robbery

Crime often affects more than just the direct victim, witnesses to a crime and family members of a person injured or killed are also affected. The effects of crime can produce many different feelings for you, your family, friends and your community.

 
Have you ever been a victim or witness to a crime?

If so, you may be entitled to certain rights under Louisiana's Crime Victim Bill of Rights.

 
How to exercise the rights granted to you as a victim and/or witness.

In order for a victim, or designated family member, to be eligible to receive notices and exercise the rights provided by law, the victim or designated family member must complete the Louisiana Victim Notice & Registration Form, which will be filed with the law enforcement agency investigating the offense of which the person is a victim of a crime.

 
Available Resources

The University of New Orleans wants you to know, if you become a victim of a crime, there are resources available here on campus and the metro area. A “Resources Available for Crime Victims” brochure has been published by the University of New Orleans to aid crime victims who wish to seek additional assistance. Hard copies of the brochure are also available at the University Police Department, Student Affairs, and Student Housing.
