A victim of a crime is defined as an individual who as the result of the delinquent actions of an individual, has been injured physically, emotionally, or has suffered pecuniary loss.

Purpose of Program

The Cameron County Juvenile Justice Department is concerned when citizens in our community become a victim of a crime which is why the Victim Services Program was established.
