Victim Assistance Unit

Our advocates respond to victims of crimes and family survivors in cases of violent and/or sudden death. Advocates address emotional issues, confusion and trauma. Advocates also make long-term referrals to help victims get on the path of recovery. They also act as a liaison between the criminal justice system and the victim.

The program is supported by staff advocates and dedicated victim assistance volunteers. An advocate is always available for crisis response.

The unit strives to make sure that victims of violent crime know about services and their rights per the Colorado constitution.
