The Victim Assistance Program is dedicated to providing help to citizens who have been victimized or otherwise traumatized
within our community. The Victim Assistance Program consists of a Coordinator, Advocate and 33 volunteers. At any given moment
you might find a volunteer at a residence, providing crises intervention to the parents of a runaway teen, in a high school
classroom talking about dating violence, or accompanied by a uniformed deputy making a death notification.
The victim assistance program has a two-fold mission. First, and foremost, they provide support to the victims and their families
during the chaos following a traumatic event. They are resourceful and able to assess a situation so that the best possible
assistance may be provided to the victims. Secondly, members assist with the emotional needs of the victim and family so that
deputies, investigators and other emergency personnel may perform their duties. Program members serve as liaison between the
victim and the people who are charged with the responsibility of investigating the scene. If victim assistance is needed,
please call our communications center at 303-795-4711.
