Help Crime Victims in Need

Thornton-Northglenn Victim Services Unit Seeks Volunteers

The Thornton-Northglenn Victim Services Unit is accepting applications for volunteer victim advocate positions. Advocate volunteers provide on-scene crisis support to victims and witnesses of violent crimes, sudden death and other emergencies. Becoming a victim advocate is a big responsibility. But the rewards are immeasurable! 

“I’ve been an advocate since 2009,” said victim advocate supervisor Vira Herrera. “It’s the best thing I’ve ever done. It is so rewarding to be able to truly help people when they are in crisis. I encourage anyone who is interested to give us a call. Being an advocate is being a part of a team that genuinely cares about people. I like that.”
