About

The Loveland Police Department in partnership with Alternatives to Violence is seeking volunteer victim advocates to join the response team. These are the advocates who go to meet a crime victim in person and provide them with the support and information needed to understand what happens next with their situation. The responding advocates meet at victim’s homes, the hospital, and/or the police department when called out by our hotline advocates to ensure a victim understand their rights outlined in the Victim’s Rights Act.

Requirements include: must be at least 21 years old; must clear a criminal background check (paid for by volunteer, reimbursed after 90 days if active); must possess a valid Colorado driver license and have current auto insurance; must live in the Loveland area for 30 minute response time; make a one-year commitment to the program. Must be able to work at least four shifts (48 hours) a month. Shifts are from 5:30pm - 8:00am weekday nights and 8:00am - 5:30 am and 5:30pm -8:00am on the weekends. Required to attend 42-hour victim advocate training (includes police ride-along). The training session will cover crisis intervention, the Victim Rights Act, community resources, active listening, emotional responses to grief and trauma and more.
