Meeting the Needs of Victims
Victims experience many problems that the Broomfield Victim Services Unit addresses through assistance and advocacy. Victims need to access resources, receive emotional support, receive information about their crime (such as officer and case information), and receive information on financial assistance, including restitution and compensation. Victims are guaranteed these basic rights through the Victim Rights Amendment, and the Broomfield Victim Services Unit assists in providing these rights. The Broomfield Victim Services Unit fills an important void by assisting victims immediately after the crime, assuring that the victim is treated with respect and dignity, and assisting the victim with the first steps of regaining physical and emotional well-being.
Please feel free to call our Victim Services Unit at 303-438-6429 or 303-438-6471, Voice/TDD 303-438-6400, or email if you have any questions or feel that you may be the victim of a crime.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your rights as a victim, call the Broomfield Police Department Victim Services Unit at 303-438-6429 or 303-438-6471 or the District Attorney’s Victim Witness Unit at 720-887-2199. 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. Victim Services 303-438-6429 or 303-438-6471) can be a helpful resource for you also.
