CourtWatch, a court monitoring program for the King County Sexual Assault Resource Center (KCSARC), is looking for volunteers. Court monitoring is the process of gathering information about the courts through observation. CourtWatch volunteers primarily observe sex offense cases filed in King County Superior Court, and complete targeted questionnaires so that the information can be used to track individual cases and important trends in different court calendars. Based on volunteers' observations, KCSARC follows up with justice system personnel to make the justice system more responsive to cases of sexual violence. Volunteers observe court proceedings at the Maleng Regional Justice Center (RJC) in Kent and/or the King County Courthouse in Seattle. Volunteers can indicate their location preference on their applications. Volunteers are required to provide their own transportation to and from court. A monitoring shift lasts approximately 3.5 hours. Volunteers are expected to make a minimum six-month commitment to volunteer for one shift per month. Volunteers may commit to monitor for less than six months (e.g. semester or quarter) if they will be receiving academic credit; however, those volunteers will be expected to volunteer at least once per week. Volunteers who are selected are also expected to attend the CourtWatch orientation before they begin monitoring. Orientations take place three times per year, in January, May, and September.
