How the Victim/Witness Assistance Program Can Help You
First Judicial District Attorney's Office
Serving Jefferson and Gilpin Counties
500 Jefferson County Parkway
Being a victim of a crime and experiencing the court system can be difficult and confusing. Trained Victim/Witness Staff can give you support, information and referrals.
The Office of the District Attorney provides a Victim/Witness Assistance Program for your benefit. This program is staffed by people who care about you and your involvement in the criminal justice system. Their goal is to help lessen the impact of being a victim or a witness to a crime.
The Victim/Witness Unit can give you information about how the court system works and what is happening with your case. We can also talk to you about the impact of the crime and answer your questions.
Some of the services available are:
- Crime Victim Compensation Program.
- Restitution Program.
- Victim/Witness Center.
- Information on the status of your case.
- On-Call System. This allows you to stay by a phone rather than wait long periods at the courthouse to testify in jury trials.
- Call-Off. We attempt to call you as soon as we know an event in your case has been continued or called off.
- Witness Fee Information.
- Employer Intervention.
- Referral to other services which may be of help to you.
- Transportation and lodging when necessary.
- Interpretation and special needs services.
If all efforts to obtain your rights have failed, you may request assistance from the Governor's Victims' Coordinating Committee. For additional information call the Office of Victims' Programs at the Division of Criminal Justice 303-239-4442.
