Attorney General Abbott Sending Crime Victim Services Resources to Fort Hood After Deadly Shooting

AUSTIN – Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is sending members of his Crime Victim Services Division to Fort Hood to work with victims of Wednesday’s attack. The Crime Victim Services Division will be assisting in victim applications for the Crime Victims’ Compensation Fund.

Attorney General Abbott offered the following comment about the shooting:

“Our hearts break for the wounded military men and women and the families of those who died. Few answers can be found in the days immediately after such a tragedy, but we pledge to assist in any we can. Members of our military and Texans in the Fort Hood-area have stared down adversity before, and they will do it again.”

The Crime Victims' Compensation Program reimburses out-of-pocket expenses to victims of violent crime and their families.
