Offender Program

Victims Impact Panel of Oklahoma, Inc. (VIP), is the original and court-recognized victim impact panel serving Oklahoma since 1989 and conducts its programs in compliance with Title 22 Oklahoma Statutes Section 991a(H)(3). Our offender program is for those that have been ordered by the court and/or required to attend as they work their way through the criminal justice system. In order to legitimize VIP, legislation was passed in 1990, which allowed Oklahoma judges to order DUI offenders to attend a victim impact panel in which they would hear in-person the testimonies of those who have been directly affected by someone’s choice to drive under the influence. It is not intended to be “punishment” for the DUI offender but rather a “wake-up call” about the consequences of bad choices.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Victims Impact Panel of Oklahoma, Inc., (VIP) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to reducing the epidemic of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Impaired driving crashes take innocent lives and physically injure an alarming number of people daily. They are the number one killer of our young people. But unlike other serious epidemics, impaired driving has a cure. The answer is found in those who are forever changed because of someone’s decision to drive under the influence.

Victims Impact Panel of Oklahoma, Inc., believes in aiming at the heart to reach people about the dangers of driving under the influence.

1. Continuing to work with the state legislature.
2. Continuing to work with all stakeholders in the criminal justice system.
3. Continuing to work in schools, and other community programs.
4. Working with various strategic partners and organizations to advance our goal and mission.
5. Working with other Victims' Impact Panel programs to coordinate our voice and messaging, as well as be a resource that can assist them in any way.
