Are you always ready to jump in and help? Come join the Westminster Police Department as a Victim Advocate Volunteer.

Victim Advocates with the Westminster Police Department, respond to victims of crime to provide crisis intervention, support, and important information to victims of crime or personal tragedy. You will be dispatched to respond to crime scenes, the police department or hospitals to provide direct services after Law Enforcement Officers have secured the scene. Advocates act in an on-call capacity nights and weekends and each advocate works 3, 12 hour shifts a month and attend a monthly meeting for on-going training. If needed you may assists staff with weekday crime response and family accompaniment to Child Forensic Center. This is a great volunteer opportunity for those interested in giving back to the community or with an interest in Criminal Justice.

Some of the benefits include:

  • Receive specialized training through our highly acclaimed Victim Advocate Academy.
  • Receive full funding to apply and receive your certification through the Colorado Advocate Certification Program (CACP).
  • The satisfaction of knowing you are helping some of the most vulnerable in society.
  • Every shift is different, as your responsibilities change from case-to-case, and each victim will have gone through a different experience which requires varied levels of support.
  • Fill hours for college credit for degrees in psychology, forensic psychology, social work, sociology, or criminal justice.
