Department Of Corrections

The Department of Corrections recognizes that the path of a victim is not always easy. The criminal justice system is large and the process can be intimidating. There are many new terms and procedures to learn. The Victim Services Unit works to answer questions and to provide you useful and timely information. It is our promise to honor you, treat you with respect and dignity, and to act as your guide while the offender is under the jurisdiction of the Colorado Department of Corrections.
