Overview
The Lone Tree Police Department is dedicated to providing the highest quality of services available to victims of crime and tragedy. The Victim Services Unit, which partners with the Parker Police Department is available 24 hours, 7 days a week, and provides direct services to victims, their families or designees. Victim Services ensures that all reasonable efforts are made to inform victims of their rights, appropriate support services, information and advocacy. These services include but are not limited to, crisis intervention services, follow-up contact, criminal justice support and advocacy and referrals and information for assistance provided by other sources.

Amendment Passed
In 1992 Colorado passed a state constitutional amendment that provides rights to victims of violent crimes. The Victim Rights Act became effective in January, 1993. The Victim Rights Act provides victims an active role in the criminal justice process in an attempt to balance the scales of justice. 

The Lone Tree Police Department is committed to the development, implementation and continuation of appropriate victim and witness services programs and activities and will treat all victims and witnesses with fairness, compassion and dignity. Lone Tree Police Department members and volunteers will work to ensure victims understand their rights provided in Colorado Revised Statutes. - (C.R.S. 24-4.1-302.5)
