MADD CLASS UPDATE FROM MADD

With ongoing COVID-19 situation, MADD Colorado is unable to hold in-person Victim Impact Panels until at least May 18th. As an option, we are making MADD’s online Victim Impact Panel available as a resource for courts, probation, and people who have gotten a DUI. 

This decision is based on feedback we’ve received from judges, probation officers, and people who need to attend a panel. 

MADD’s online Victim Impact Panel was originally developed for areas that do not have an in-person option. Normally, the online program is only available in other states.
The online option will be available here until the State of Colorado recommends resuming events of 10 or more people and we can hold our in-person Victim Impact Panels again.

Please know judges and probation officers can decide if they will accept the online Victim Impact Panel in lieu of an in-person panel. If judicial districts prefer to wait until in-person panels can resume, we have suggested a 90-day extension of the deadline to complete a panel.   

Here are the online Victim Impact Panel (VIP) details: 

·       MADD’s online VIP can be accessed at https://online.maddvip.org/. 

·       The cost to complete the program online is $65. While the VIP fee is still $50, the online VIP program carries an additional service fee of $15 which covers the cost of hosting and servicing the program. 

·       The certificate of completion looks different than our typical VIP certificate, but it still features the MADD logo. To verify the identity of the attendee, the online VIP also takes a photo of the attendee upon completion and prints the photo on the certificate. 

·       The program can be completed on a computer, smartphone, or tablet—any device that has a camera. Please contact MADD if you have questions. We are still working and will be available for you. We are so grateful for all you do to keep our communities safe and we want to support you during this time.
