Victim Services

The Victim Services program is a unit in the Delta County Sheriff’s Office. Our program is designed to help victims of crime from the moment the crime is reported until the case is through the criminal justice system. The advocate is on call 24/7 to provide on-site crisis intervention to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, and other victim related crimes. Our advocate is trained to listen, offer support and give victims the information and/or referrals they need. This also includes crime victim compensation that will assist with expenses and therapy.

The Victim Rights Program as presently constituted by the State of Colorado was begun in 1991. Our program was one of the first county programs started on the western slope. Our Sheriff and the County Commissioners have been supportive of the program from its inception.

Originally funded by a Victim Assistance and Law Enforcement (VALE) grant, the program has expanded from one day a week to a full time position. The position is funded solely by the County of Delta.

If you are a victim in any circumstance, need support or guidance, or if you have any questions or suggestions for improvement, please feel free to call Monday through Friday 8:00 am – 5:00 pm, or call 970-874-2007.
