Serving Victims

This section presents information about victimization, victim characteristics, and the District Attorney’s (DA) Office’s engagement with victims, witnesses, and the general community. 

Why is this important? Understanding the victim population, providing effective services, and timely engagement helps develop the mutual transparency and trust needed to advance community safety and well-being.








Indicators

Below are a set of indicators that provide additional context about serving victims. These indicators help the DA's Office ensure they are supporting crime victims with timely outreach, ensuring victims' voices are heard, and preventing future victimization. 


The Denver DA's Office's goal is to reduce differences in victimization by race/ethnicity. There are well-recognized difficulties in collecting accurate race and ethnicity data. One should keep these difficulties in mind when reviewing metrics which include race and/or ethnicity. The Denver District Attorney's Office supports efforts by our law enforcement partners to more accurately collect race and ethnicity data.



The Office goal is to reduce differences in victimization by socioeconomic status. We use zip code as a proxy for socioeconomic status. However, gentrification may affect this metric.
