"Justice will only be achieved when those who are not injured by crime feel as indignant as those who are."

  

- King Solomon

 

The Mississippi Department of Corrections (MDOC) Division of Victim Services provides crime victims who register with the department notification prior to an inmate's release and provides for other services to crime victims.

 

We have noted that quite a few crime victims are only now beginning to realize they would like to receive services and support from local providers.  Obviously, with some crime victims, their energies have been so absorbed with the criminal justice system that once the offender is sent to prison, the victim only then has a chance to actually deal with the trauma of the crime itself.

      

We are here to serve you and help with your transition from victim to survivor.
