POLICE: Victim Services Unit Seeks Volunteers

The Reno Police Department’s Victim Services unit wants volunteers for its March training academy. Volunteers provide crisis intervention and support services by phone to victims of domestic violence, stalking, and protection order violations.

The police department said that “ideal candidates must show reliability, integrity, discretion, compassion, and commitment,” but that no prior experience is required.

The March training program takes 40 hours over nine class sessions, including a police ride-along. Applications for the training are due Jan. 19, 2018.
