The Victims Advocate Program provides assistance to victims 24 hours, 7 days a week responding to all locations.

The services provided include:

  • On-scene assistance
  • Emotional Support
  • Information on referrals and resources
  • Information regarding Victims Compensations Assistance
  • Assistance with bond hearings

In addition to the support provided victims, one of the main goals of the victim advocate is to inform victims of the legal rights afforded them under title 24 in the Colorado Statutes. The Victims Advocate assures that victims are aware of their legal rights by providing and explaining a victim rights pamphlet.

The Victims Advocate responds to not only crime victims but also assists by providing services in several situations such as suicides, unattended deaths, family problems, fires, missing persons, and death notifications.
