Office for Victim Assistance (OVA)
Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
The FBI is committed to ensuring victims receive the rights they are entitled to and the assistance they need to cope with crime. Their resources include an Office for Victim Assistance (OVA) at FBI Headquarters and victim specialists nationwide. The OVA is responsible for ensuring that victims of crimes investigated by the FBI are afforded the opportunity to receive the services and notification as required by federal law and the Attorney General Guidelines on Victim and Witness Assistance. The OVA webpage provides resources for victims, news and stories, other federal resources, printable brochures and handouts, and more.
