Victim Assistance

The Polk County Attorney’s Office sends a victim packet to all victims to be returned with the amount of losses due to injury to property damage where a suspect has been identified and charged with the crime. If the defendant is found guilty or pleads guilty to the offense, the Court will order the defendant to pay restitution to the victim.

For more information, please contact the Polk County Attorney’s Office, Restorative Justice Center, 206 Sixth Avenue, Des Moines, Iowa 50309, or call (515) 286-3057.

Crime Victim Compensation Program

The Crime Victim Compensation Program provides financial resources for victims of crime or dependants of victims who died as a result of a crime. It helps victims with their out-of-pocket costs from crime-related injuries. This program does not require that the suspect be identified and arrested, only that you cooperate in every way possible with the Criminal Justice System toward the apprehension. For help, complete the form located on the Iowa Attorney General Crime Victim Compensation Program website or call (515) 281-5044.
