MADD has developed a national Court Monitoring Project. The goals of the program are:
- To compile pertinent information on how DWI cases are handled in the greater St. Louis region.
- To make those involved in the legal process aware of public interest and concern about the outcome of criminal cases.
- To report information gathered by the program to relevant entities so the legal system can be improved.
A volunteer for the MADD Gateway Court Monitoring Project would be responsible for observing DWI cases within the court system and collecting pertinent information. Volunteers can set their own schedule and attend court cases in the morning, afternoon or evening. This volunteer opportunity would be perfect for anyone interested in the criminal justice, legal or social work fields, or who would like to play an effective role within their community.
The volunteer must also have access to an automobile (as they will be traveling to court frequently) and pass a background check.
Involves a brief training that can be completed online prior to starting.
This is a great opportunity to become involved with a long standing and important organization!
We are also looking for a volunteer to help input data collected from cases into our online database. Online training is available and entering the data can be done from the comfort of your home!
