The Lethbridge Police Services Victim Services Unit is recruiting some new volunteers. The team is looking to bring on between 15 to 20 volunteers. It would be a group of up to 60 people who can deliver 24-hour crisis support, 365 days a year.
“We’re looking for people specifically that have the compassion for folks that have been the victim of crime or trauma or tragedy in the city. We do look for a two year commitment from people with about two shifts a month. So there is a commitment level to it. But there’s a ton of opportunity to build a resource team, to learn a lot. We put you through a very wide variety of training and give people the opportunity to grow into the potential of who they could be as a crisis support worker.”
Officials at the LPS say applications are being accepted until Oct 25.
