Then and Now: Prison system adapts to give victims a voice

In 1982, California voters approved Proposition 8, known as the Victims’ Bill of Rights. Six years later, the department established the Victim Services Program, known today as the Office of Victim and Survivor Rights and Services (OVSRS). Today OVSRS is a national leader in enforcing the rights of victims and providing vital services to communities impacted by crime. CDCR will acknowledge the journey and courage of crime victims and survivors, and celebrate those who advocate on their behalf during National Crime Victim’s Rights Week, April 8-14.
