Volunteers – Victim Services

Our Victim Services Unit (VSU) recruits individuals with the sensitivity and self-awareness necessary 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 your knowledge of community resources while performing a needed and rewarding service.

As a volunteer, you will assist on the front lines of crisis intervention, provide immediate response to victims of various criminal and crisis circumstances. After completion of training, you are “on call” during which you must be prepared to respond to a request for assistance immediately. In addition to direct services, you will also participate in various agency activities to include community engagement events.
