Crime Victim Rights Act (VRA)

What is the Victim Rights Act (VRA)?

The Victim Rights Act (VRA) in Colorado ensures that crime victims are treated with fairness, respect, dignity and that they are free from intimidation, harassment, and abuse. The VRA also helps to ensure that victims are informed of critical stages of the criminal justice process and that they may be present for, and heard, at certain stages as well.

If the offender was sentenced to probation and you wish to be notified, please fill out the appropriate form and return it to the probation department that is supervising the defendant:
