Colorado Victims Right's Amendment

Crime victims have certain rights. If you are a victim of one of the crimes listed below, your rights are guaranteed by the Colorado Constitution:



If you have any questions or concerns regarding your rights as a victim, call the Elbert Sheriff's Office Victim Assistance Unit at 303-621-2027 ext. 6126 or ext. 6129 or the District Attorney's Victim Witness Unit at 303-663-7719. If all local efforts to obtain your rights have failed, you may request assistance from the Governor's Victims Coordinating Committee. For additional information, call the Office for Victim's Programs at the Division of Criminal Justice 303-239-4442.


Even if you weren't the direct victim, remember that people who care about victims often become co-victims emotionally. Find people who can support and listen to you, and ask for help when you need it. Our Victim Assistance Unit (303-621-2027 ext. 6126 or ext. 6129) can be a helpful resource for you also.
