In the Toolkit, you'll find nearly everything victims need to know about their rights from the time of first report to a hospital or police through investigation, prosecution, incarceration, and post release control.
The Toolkit provides victims with information and tools to protect and enforce their rights, such as:
- Ohio and federal crime victims' rights laws (explaining them in layman's terms with links to the Ohio Revised Code),
- best practices, and
- form letters to help victims exercise their rights

NOTE: Not all people are eligible to obtain a Concealed Carry License, most commonly because of a prior criminal record.
