About Us

VIP is the original victim’s impact panel in the state of Oklahoma. We have been active in the state for over thirty years. Because of our work, legislation passed in 1990 that allowed Oklahoma judges to order DUI offenders to attend a victim's impact panel. In 2018, an independent study found that in the major counties in Oklahoma where our panel is offered, there was a success rate of over 90%.

The VIP staff, liaisons, volunteers, and partners all work tirelessly to work every angle to end the epidemic of driving under the influence. Impaired and distracted driving kills thousands of people yearly, and all these deaths are preventable. VIP helps victims, rescue professionals, and past offenders tell their stories in the hopes they can prevent the same tragedy for others.

How we're different


Real Stories

Our panels are in person. Clients hear about the terrible effects of impaired and distracted driving from the people who have lived it.



Many programs focus on shaming and isolating offenders, which isn’t linked to decreasing recidivism. Victims Impact Panel of Oklahoma educates clients and shows them how to make better choices in the future.
