Victim Assistance Programs
Crime is increasing in the United States. Unfortunately, the citizens of Granbury are not immune to this problem. With the increases in crime there is an increase in victims of crime. We have become very aware of the trauma of victimization. We have now formed a Victim Assistance Program which is available to assist you with your concerns and questions. The Granbury Police Department victim assistance liaison is:

Resources for Victims of Violent Crime
In Texas, innocent victims of violent crime, including victims of sexual assault and drunk drivers, may apply for money to help with medical bills, loss of income, child care, counseling, or financial costs related to the death of a family member. The program is intended to help with expenses that may not be covered by insurance or other sources.
The Texas Crime Victim Compensation Act provides certain benefits for victims of violent crime. The law applies to any resident of the United States, its possessions and territories, or District of Columbia who is the victim of violent crime in Texas.
A Texas resident who becomes a victim in another state is covered if that state does not have a compensation program for which the victim would be eligible, and the victim would have been eligible if the crime had occurred in Texas.
