The Colorado Victim Rights Amendment became effective in 1993. The purpose of this amendment is to guarantee victims of violent crime a voice in the criminal justice system.
Victims of crime may experience physical injury, emotional harm or financial loss. Once the crime is reported, victims may feel powerless within the criminal justice system. Colorado law enforcement and all components of the criminal justice system are working to empower every victim of a violent crime.
