The President's Task Force devised this list of recommendations (with commentary) to help crime victims receive the financial, medical, and legal help they need. The recommendations are directed toward Federal and State governments, criminal justice agencies, and private agencies (hospitals, schools, mental health agencies, etc.).
President Ronald Reagan created the President's Task Force on Victims of Crime in 1982 to address the needs of the millions of Americans and their families who are victimized by crime every year. In creating its report, the task force reviewed the available literature on criminal victimization, interviewed professionals responsible for serving victims, and spoke with citizens from around the country whose lives have been altered by crime.
