The Boulder County Probation Department’s Victim Services Team is comprised of Victim Assistance Coordinators, collection investigators and restorative justice facilitators. The goal of this Unit is to provide assistance to victims of crime in the Twentieth Judicial District, (Boulder County). If the Unit cannot provide a direct service, they will collaborate with other community agencies to make an appropriate referral. After an offender has either been found guilty or pled guilty to an offense in either District or County Court and is sentenced to Probation, victims can access our services for as long as the offender is on probation, this includes both adult and juvenile cases.
Prior to the sentencing of the offender, the Victim Services team is available to assist the victim (s) in preparing and distributing a Victim Impact Statement. The Victim Impact Statement gives victims the opportunity to share with the Court how this offense has impacted them and what they would like to see happen regarding sentencing. Statements can be made in Court or written by the victim or significant others. VAC’s are available to meet with the victim in person or by phone to assist in this process. They can also meet with the victim and prepare a video taped Victim Impact Statement. These statements will be distributed to the Court, District Attorney’s Office and the Defense Attorney. If appropriate, Victim Assistance Coordinator's can also serve as a liaison between the victim and the Community Corrections Board during the victim’s participation in the offender’s screening process for Community Corrections.
Upon the request of the victim, Victim Assistance Coordinator’s will keep them notified regarding the status of a probation case for as long as the person is on probation. Please click here for a complete listing of the notifications given.
Beyond these services, Victim Assistance Coordinator’s are also available to assist victims with services that may include but are not limited to restraining orders, child support and visitation, safety plans, restitution and restorative justice remedies.
The criminal justice system can be confusing and frustrating. Victim Assistance Coordinator’s do their best to answer and address the questions and needs of the victim. For more information on our current Victim Services Team, contact VAC Danielle Fagan by phone at 303-441-3724 (email@example.com
