Victim advocates needed

Want to volunteer to help people who are experiencing possibly the most difficult day of their life? The Grand Junction Police Department is seeking volunteer victim advocates who do just that.

Victim Advocate Program volunteers, or VAPs, work on 12-hour, on-call shifts and respond to law enforcement-related calls. VAPs help people who are the victims of crimes or other traumatic incidents.

Training to become a VAP starts the second week of March. Training is twice weekly for six weeks. Anyone interested in becoming a VAP should call Mary Harmeling at 549-5290 or contact her by email at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
