Annotation: This annual report covers the activities of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Commission (CICC) from July 1, 1992, to June 30, 1993.
Abstract: The CICC was established by the Hawaii State Legislature in 1967 to compensate victims of particular crimes and their relatives, as well as to compensate private citizens for any damage they suffered during the prevention of a crime or the apprehension of a criminal. Victims are referred to CICC by the county police departments and the Victim Witness Divisions of the Office of the Prosecuting Attorney throughout Hawaii. The past year's activity was characterized by a growing number of claims and a backlog of pending claims. Changes of policy included a broadening of the types of eligible victims, an increase in compensation, and various procedural changes. Charts on the number of completed cases are categorized according to the crime committed against the victim. If the commission denied compensation, the denial reason appears in a separate chart. Appendix A briefly describes the recipient of each awarded compensation as well as a break-down of the moneys received. Appendix B describes the applicants of each denied compensation and states the reasons for the denial. Appendix C describes all applicants who withdrew their application before the CICC made a decision. Appendix D presents statistics on the number of applications and the reasons for which compensations were granted (e.g., funeral and burial expenses, loss of earning power, pain and suffering, and property loss) from 1967 to 1994.
