The Victims of Crime Resource Center is located on the Pacific McGeorge School of Law campus in Sacramento, California.
The Center has operated the State of California's confidential, toll-free 1-800-VICTIMS line since 1984. Primarily through the hotline, McGeorge law students provide resource and referral information to victims and their families, victim service providers, and other victim advocates. Callers receive information on matters such as victims compensation, victims' rights in the justice system, restitution, civil suits, the right to speak at sentencing and parole board hearings, as well as information on specific rights of victims of domestic violence, elder abuse, child abuse, and abuse against the disabled.
The Center is mandated by legislation, California Penal Code Section 13897, and is funded through the California Governor's Office of Emergency Services (CalOES).
