Issue Position: Victim Services
Soon after becoming Attorney General, Mike created the Office of Victim Services. This has dramatically improved services to Montana crime victims, especially through increased victims' compensation and restitution collected from offenders.
Mike has long been a vigorous advocate for victims of domestic violence and child abuse. He has increased emphasis within the criminal justice system on family violence training for prosecutors. He also formed Montana's first Fatality Review Commission. Commission members work with their counterparts in local communities to examine cases of domestic homicide and identify ways to prevent similar cases in the future.
