Victims' Compensation

Crime Victim’s Compensation

If you have been injured as the result of a crime - including family or domestic violence - you may be eligible for help through The Texas Office of the Attorney General (OAG). The Texas OAG administers the Crime Victims’ Compensation Program, which can reimburse you for out-of-pocket expenses, medical bills, counseling costs, or funeral expenses.

The Gainesville Police Department strives to provide information to victims of crime, by providing its citizens a pamphlet (PDF) of information and closely working with our local program Abigail’s Arms which can assist victims. Please take a look at their webpage as well for more information.
