dc.description Report en_US
dc.description.abstract This report takes a comprehensive look at crime in Nevada with specific emphasis on victim assistance programs administered by the Nevada Division of Child and Family Services (DCFS). Considering that victim compensation in Nevada is not administered by Nevada DCFS, information specifically related to victim compensation was not included in this report. This report begins by introducing the costs of crime and the ideals behind supporting victims through the criminal justice process. The funding priorities and regulations of VOCA are outlined at the federal and state level, details methods for VOCA money utilization in Nevada and types of services victims’ need are described in detail. The context for understanding VOCA is set by describing the demographics and rates of different types of crime occurring in Nevada. A GAPS analysis follows, which considers in detail the system and community-based agencies providing supportive services to Nevada victims. The GAPS analysis includes a description of underserved victims in Nevada. These findings are considered through a Strengths, Weakness, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT) analysis highlighting strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats to providing services to victims in Nevada. The use of data in Nevada is discussed with recommendations for changes. This analysis ends with a discussion of themes and recommendations for transforming victim services in Nevada. [CVRL Note: includes services accessed by county and type of service.] (Author Text) en_US
