Originally created in 1995 by the Texas State Legislature, and moved eight years later from the office of the Attorney General to Sam Houston State University, the Crime Victims' Institute provides studies of crime victims, online local and national resources for crime victims and links to criminal justice education. The "Publications" available on the site can be accessed on the far left hand side of the menu and include Legislative Briefs, Research Briefs, Survey Reports, and General Information. "Videos", also available on the far left hand side of the menu, include a video entitled "Stalking: Real Fear Real Crime" that is a training tape inspired by a real crime victim. The left hand menu also contains three important categories for all victims: "Victim Compensation", "Victim Impact Statement", and "Victim Rights", which provide links in English and Spanish, as well as victim impact forms. Almost the complete text of the Texas Crime Victim Bill of Rights is also available under the "Victim Rights" link.
