Our audit of the Victim of Crime Act federal program, administered by the Department of Criminal Justice Services (Criminal Justice Services), for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2023, found:


• proper recording and reporting of all transactions, in all material respects, in the Commonwealth’s accounting and reporting system; and
