Information for Victims of Crime


The Office of Victim Services stores unreported SOECKs for 20 years after collection. OVS stores kits in a secure facility. We will keep your items until the 20 years has passed or until you make a choice about your kit. 
Your choices include:

  • Keeping the kit in storage for 20 years
  • Reporting and releasing your kit to law enforcement
  • Returning your personal items to you
  • Disposing of the items prior to the 20-year timeframe

The Kit Inventory and Tracking System (KITS) has a Victim Portal that allows you to view the status of your kit, update your preferences and personal information. Your case number and PIN provide access to the portal; remember to keep that information secure.
