(1) The Attorney General may adopt rules to establish a nonjudicial process, independent of the process established in ORS 147.500 (Definitions) to 147.550 (Establishment of requirements and procedures by Chief Justice by rule or order) and applicable to agencies in the executive branch of state government, district attorneys, juvenile departments and local law enforcement agencies, to receive claims of violations of rights granted to victims of crime in the criminal and juvenile justice systems by law, to determine whether violations have occurred and to make nonbinding recommendations for achieving full compliance with victims’ rights laws in the future.

(2) The Attorney General, in consultation with agencies in the executive branch of state government, district attorneys, juvenile departments and local law enforcement agencies, may promulgate model rules, procedures or policies, applicable only to entities outside of the judicial branch of state government, effectuating rights granted to victims by law. Model rules, procedures or policies are not enforceable by law, but the Attorney General may condition the provision of victim assistance funds or support by the Department of Justice on compliance with such model rules, procedures or policies.
