There are several ways you can get help in filing a compensation claim. Law enforcement may have already given you a brochure that contains a list of victim service programs. You may contact one of them for assistance. Or you can click on victim service program and locate a program in your county or you can contact the Victims Compensation Assistance Program directly toll-free at 800-233-2339 for assistance.
You may be able to provide receipts or estimates of value from stores or the Internet but you may want to talk to an advocate at your local victim service program.
The police will need to hold the property until all court actions are completed. The district attorney assigned to each case will decide when the property is no longer needed or if photographs are all that is needed. You may want to talk to an advocate at your local victim service program that can assist you with this.
