Victim Resources

Under Minnesota law, victims of crimes have certain rights. These rights include the right to be notified of certain court and correctional events, the right to participate in prosecution, the right to protection from harm and the right to apply for financial assistance. For more information, view the Crime Victim Rights brochure.  
To exercise any of these rights or to learn more about them, contact the Brown County Victim/Witness Coordinator at 507-233-6665.
Restitution is the money a judge orders the offender to pay the victim to compensate the victim for losses related to the crime.
Minnesota Crime Victim's Reparations Board
The Crime Victims Reparations Board provides financial help to victims and their families for losses incurred as a result of the crime.
Victims of crime have the right to participate and be heard in the criminal justice system through the use of victim impact statements. Victim impact statements provide victims the opportunity to express the impact the crime has had on them, their family, or their business.

Minnesota VINE

Victim Information & Notification Everyday (VINE) is a free, secure, and confidential way to access custody status and register to receive notification regarding an offender’s custody status change.

Minnesota Haven Notification System

Minnesota Haven is the notification system for crime victims, witnesses, or those affected by a crime resulting in an offender being sentenced to the Minnesota Department of Corrections (MN DOC). Minnesota Haven offers victims and witnesses notification when an offender is moved, permits a dialogue with the offender if requested by the victim, and it allows a victim to voice an opinion regarding the offender's re-entry process following completion of his or her sentence. To register for the service, please complete the downloadable Microsoft Word Document and submit it to the Minnesota Department of Corrections Victim Assistance Program either by mail, email, or fax.
