The New Jersey State Police is seeking volunteers for Domestic Violence Response Teams in Atlantic and Burlington Counties.

Volunteer advocates work in conjunction with police, prosecutor’s offices, and other organizations to provide support, information, referrals, and a safety plan to victims of domestic violence.

Volunteers must attend a free 40-hour training course, possess a driver’s license, be willing to serve on an on-call shift basis, and submit to background investigations and fingerprinting.

Applications are currently being accepted. For more information, contact the New Jersey State Police Victim Services Unit at (609) 882-2000 ext. 2375.
