The Victim Services Unit of the Travis County Sheriff’s Office is currently seeking volunteers to serve as a vital component in the strong and long-standing commitment of the Sheriff’s Office to victims of crime and crisis circumstances.

What do our volunteers do?

Victim Services Unit volunteers assist staff on the front lines of crisis intervention! Our volunteers provide immediate response to victims in crisis.

We accept volunteers of excellent moral standing who have the sensitivity required to provide effective assistance to those in crisis. Participating in our volunteer program is an excellent opportunity to gain experience in crisis intervention, learn about the criminal justice system/law enforcement response, and enhance knowledge of community resources while performing a needed and rewarding service!

Should you consider volunteering with us?

Are you 21 or older? Do you have a reliable vehicle? Do you have the state required insurance for your vehicle? Do you have a working cell phone? Does your schedule allow for 4 four-hour shifts (16 hours) of on-call a month? Could you make a one year commitment to the program? Can you attend the required three week training (Mondays 6pm-9pm, Thursdays 6pm-9pm, and Saturdays 9am-5pm) for three consecutive weeks?

Please visit to complete an application. The spring training class is scheduled from March 23 – April 11, 2015. If you have any questions contact Victim Services Director Amy Durall at or 512-854-8492.
