It is designed to help you and your partners assess progress as you steer your agency toward the enhanced victim response. By using the checklist, you can spotlight where goals are “Completed”, “In Process” or “Need Attention”. The checklist will reflect the current status of goals established by your agency, help more fully understand the intent and objectives of the enhanced response to victims of crime, and, most importantly, assist you to implement the strategy in your agency and community.
