Federal Agencies Help Protect Crime Victims, Witnesses

Victims and witnesses of white collar crimes have rights under federal law to ensure that they are treated fairly during investigations and trials and that they are reasonably protected from threats and harassment. The FDIC and other federal and state law enforcement agencies have services and educational materials that they provide to help crime victims and witnesses deal with the anger, confusion, frustration or fears they may have as a result of their experience. For more information about victim and witness assistance programs, contact an appropriate law enforcement agency. For information from the FDIC, write to the Office of Inspector General, 801 17th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20434.
