You may be helping a victim of domestic violence, comforting a family who unexpectedly lost a loved one, or meeting with a victim of crime who needs support. These volunteers help ensure that victims receive all the rights they are entitled to by law. To apply visit www.ci.longmont.co.us/police or call 303-651-8855 for additional information.
