Law Enforcement Victim Services

Gunnison County Law Enforcement Victim Services provides information, support and referrals to crime victims and their families though out the Gunnison Valley.  This program is supported by the Gunnison Police Department, the Gunnison County Sheriff’s Office, Crested Butte Marshal’s Office and Mt Crested Butte Police Department. 

This program is staffed by a dedicated and trained Law Enforcement Victim Advocate who is on-call 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week, to respond immediately to the scene of a crime, accident, or victim's home at the request of law enforcement or a victim.  As an experienced active listener, the Victim Advocate, will assist victims in sorting through the law enforcement process and ensure that their voices are represented and heard.  The advocate will help victims regain control by encouraging them to manage one part of the problem at a time, provide referrals and prepare and inform the victim of “what is next”. 

Many resources are available within Gunnison County.  Victims will be provided with appropriate referrals on the criminal justice system, victim's rights, crime victim compensation, protection orders, mental health counseling, and safety. The advocate can provide victims procedural and factual information concerning the crime and act as a liaison with law enforcement and other community agencies.
