The Larimer County Sheriff’s Office and Fort Collins Police Services are looking for compassionate and caring people to serve as victim advocates. Victim advocates provide a valuable service for the community by assisting victims and protecting their rights.

In addition to needed emotional support and crisis intervention, advocates offer information about the criminal justice system and the resources available to the victim. Advocates often act as a liaison between the victim and the officers investigating an incident.

Services are provided to victims 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Advocates are asked to work four to six 12-hour shifts per month and attend a meeting each month.

Volunteers must be at least 21 years of age, complete 40-50 hours of training and successfully complete the application process which includes a criminal history check and a background investigation.

Being a victim advocate can be personally rewarding as well as providing a much needed and important service to the community.
