The Parker Police Department is dedicated to providing the highest quality of services available to victims of crime and tragedy. The Victim Services Unit at the Parker Police Department is available 24 hours, 7 days a week, and provides direct services to victims, their families or designees. The Victim Services Unit ensures that all reasonable efforts are made to inform victims of their rights, appropriate support services, information and advocacy. These services include, but are not limited to, short-term crisis intervention, follow up contact, and referrals/information to other criminal justice agencies and/or community agencies.
In 1992 Colorado passed a state constitutional amendment that provides rights to victims of certain crimes. The Victim Rights Act became effective in January, 1993, at which time the Parker Police Department established their Victim Services Program. The Victim Rights Act provides victims an active role in the criminal justice process in an attempt to balance the scales of justice.
The Parker Police Department is committed to the development, implementation and continuation of appropriate victim and witness services programs and activities and will treat all victims and witnesses with fairness, compassion and dignity. Parker Police Department members and volunteers will work to ensure victims understand their rights provided in Colorado Revised Statutes. - (C.R.S. 24-4.1-302.5)
If you are a victim of a crime, it is your right to be informed and to participate in all critical stages of the criminal justice process. For more information regarding victim rights and services that you may be entitled to, please see The Rights of Victims of Crime.
