Jack Markell on Crime

Delaware Democratic Governor


Give crime victims the right to receive restitution

The most fundamental role of state government is the public safety and welfare of its residents. I believe fighting crime must be a top priority as we move forward. My comprehensive proposal will do this:
  • I will establish a Delaware COPS Program with joint state and local funding to add 200 more police officers to the streets.
  • I will invest in smarter law enforcement by partnering with local law enforcement to obtain new crime-fighting technologies.
  • I will create a Delaware Office for Victims of Crime so crime victims can have a “one-stop-shop” for victims’ rights and services
  • I will ensure that crime victims have constitutional rights by amending the state constitution to ensure crime victims are notified of all critical stages of the criminal justice process; the right to confer with prosecutors prior to the disposition of cases; the right to provide a victim impact statement at sentencing; and the right to receive victim compensation and restitution.
