The Victim Services Program for the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office is looking for compassionate people to act in the capacity of volunteer victim advocates.

Victim advocates are trained to offer emotional support and crisis intervention to crime victims in Larimer County.  Advocates provide information on the criminal justice system, resources in the community, aid in acquiring emergency shelter, and facilitate other immediate needs.  They also conduct follow-up assistance by providing victim compensation benefits information as well as updates on the status and progression of a victim’s case through preliminary stages of the judicial system.

Services are provided to victims 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.  Advocates are on-call for four to six 12-hours shifts per month, taking your schedule into account.  At least two volunteer advocates are on-call at all times.

Applicants will be required to pass a criminal history check and background investigation.  Volunteer advocates are also required to attend a 40-hour training program (starts in October) prior to being placed in an on-call capacity. 

If you are interested in a rewarding volunteer opportunity, please consider becoming a victim advocate with the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office.
