OFFICE OF VICTIMS' RIGHTS INVESTIGATIONS

The Office of Victims' Rights (OVR) has the statutory authority to conduct investigations of complaints from crime victims that they have been denied the rights they are guaranteed under Alaska's constitution and laws of this state. Within a reasonable time after an investigation is completed, and after the OVR reports their opinion and recommendations to a criminal justice agency, Alaska statute 24.65.160 authorizes the OVR to present their investigative findings, opinions and recommendations to the governor, the legislature, a grand jury, the public, or any of these. Listed below are the results of recent investigations by the OVR.
