Crime Victims Need More Help

The results of a survey of crime victims in South Australia were recently released in Report Two of the Victims of Crime Review conducted by the Attorney General's Department. The majority of victims appear to need more information and/ or support.

Some key findings from the resonses were:
Half the victims in country regions did not recieve the Information for victims of crime booklet.
Nearly a third of metropolitan vcitims did not receive the booklet.
60% of victims are not referred for counselling or support.
Most victims are not told about Criminal Injuries Compensation.
Over 80% of victims want more information about their cases.
Over half the victims surveyed received the help they needed but around 40% did not.
65% of victims from across a range of crimes suffer emotionally

The survey confirmed many of the findings in Report One of the Victims of Crime Review and indicate that there are still many unmet needs for information and assistance.
The findings reported here are only a "snapshot" of the most topical and interesting to our wide range of readers. All the victims of Crime Review Reports are in our resource Centre for your reference.
