Welcome to Your Rights!
Victims' Rights in Arkansas lack a state constitutional amendment for enforceable victims' rights. Arkansas Victims' Rights laws exist via state statute. By law, all law enforcement agencies are to provide, inform, and explain victims' rights to victims of crime. Law enforcement agencies include police agencies, prosecuting attorney offices, parole / probation agencies, and any post-conviction agencies (including holding facilities).
Victim Responsibility: Victims must request the rights they want to use at each stage of the process. This requires victims to notify police agencies, prosecuting attorney offices, victim advocates, parole/probation agencies, and post-conviction agencies of each right the victim wants to put into action.
