Victims of crimes, or those in personal tragedy, often feel scared, confused, alone and overwhelmed. Many are going through the most trying time of their life and need a caring voice. Volunteer victim advocates provide that voice and help community members as they navigate through troubling times. If you want to make a difference in your community, become a volunteer victim's advocate for the Parker Police Department's Victim Services Unit.


 Victim advocates provide immediate crisis intervention and support for victims of crime and surviving families in cases of death, domestic violence, sexual assault, and other crimes. 


 Applicants must be at least 21 years old and able to volunteer nights and weekends. They must be willing to commit to at least one year of service. Applicants must possess an open and non-judgmental attitude towards victims and survivors. If selected, applicants must complete a full background check, including a polygraph examination.


 Advocates will be provided in-depth and ongoing training on the dynamics of victimization, victim rights, and the criminal justice system.
