Law enforcement agencies responding to crime incidents are required by Arkansas’s Victim’s Bill of Rights outlined in Arkansas Victim Rights Act of 1997 and Laura's Card Act 873 to inform victims in writing of their victim’s rights. Officers must inform victims of the availability of services: medical, housing, counseling, financial, social, legal, and emergency services. In addition, officers MUST inform victims about how to obtain orders of protection, how to access public records related to the case, and about the Arkansas Crime Victims Reparations Board (including the address and phone number). The Henderson State University Police Department maintains a copy of Laura's Card online.
