    Victim rights are a powerful tool for victims—and for law enforcement. Victims who have received their rights are stronger witnesses, more likely to share information with agents, and better able to testify. Victim rights are also an important means to protect and empower victims throughout the case. Law enforcement agents who understand victim rights can help victims to receive the voice they are entitled to and avoid rights violations that can sidetrack an investigation or prosecution. This session, taught by the Justice Department’s former expert on victim rights law, covers the rights that law enforcement officers need to know and how to accord those rights in a way that leaves victims feeling supported, protected, and heard.
