Trained Victim's Assistance Volunteer

Save to Favorites

Glendale Police Dept.

  • 32 people are interested
VA Team

Needing already formally trained crisis intervention volunteers. Formal training should include responding to domestic violence and sex assault victims, as well as other crimes.

Volunteers to take calls weekday evenings or some days/nights on weekends (We cover 24/7 but you can choose which hours you can be available). Victim Advocates assist officers whenever they request us at violent crimes. VA's will accompany police officers to the station, hospitals or crime scenes to support victims and ensure they are treated with dignity and respect. Advocates will know about local referrals, see that rights are upheld and be adept at crisis management. Will also accompany officers to make death notifications. Call times will generally be from 5:30 pm to 6 am weekdays and around the clock on weekends and holidays. We are able to work with you on scheduling, however.

Advocates are also called out to assist in fires, severe auto accidents, or other emergencies.

On-call means you are free to go about your business, but if called, must be able to respond to Glendale within 30-35 minutes.

Advocates must pass a background check and polygraph, which will include no drug usage in the past 3 years. Though marijuana is legal in CO, since it is not at the federal level, the police chief does not allow it's usage by employees or volunteers for the Glendale Police Dept.
