The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office is seeking volunteers to serve as on-scene victim advocates to provide assistance to victims of crime and traumatic events.
Working as a victim advocate offers the opportunity to touch the lives of others by providing a valuable source of support and information to those who have had their lives altered by a crime or traumatic event.
No prior experience is necessary, training will be provided. Ideal volunteers are at least 21 years old, calm, compassionate, emotionally mature and non-judgmental.
Former Sheriff Joe Pelle said, "Our victim advocates provide direct and follow-up support to the victims of crime and tragedy in our communities. This is a much needed, much appreciated service. The opportunity for personal reward and growth for the advocate is rich as well. Please consider joining us. We need people with a caring heart and who are willing to listen to and support victims and their families."
If accepted into the program, advocates must attend 40 hours of training in advocacy, crisis intervention, grief response, victim right's, criminal justice processes and resource information.
On-Scene Volunteer Advocates must be willing to make a one-year commitment to the program, attend monthly program meetings, and to commit to one on-call shift per month.
The following are the available shift opportunities:
Days (Mon 6am-6pm, Tues 6am-6pm, Wed 6am-6pm, Thurs 6am-6pm, Fri 6am-6pm)

The Boulder County Sheriff's Office Victim Assistance Program provides crisis intervention, assistance, information, and advocacy to victims and witnesses of serious crime, trauma, and survivors of sudden loss immediately after their victimization.
The Victim Assistance Program is comprised of two essential programs. Our OnScene Program takes immediate steps to assist those impacted by crime or a traumatic event by responding to the scene. Our Outreach Program is designed to provide outreach through phone, mail, or email, to victims of crime and traumatic events when those impacted do not receive onscene support.
Please visit our website for more information on our Victim Assistance Programs and to apply to become an vital member of our team.
