RCMP Victim Services looking to add to their volunteer roster

An information night will be held Wednesday for those interested in becoming a Prince George RCMP Victim Services volunteer.

It's not pretty, but it can be rewarding. Volunteers provide support to survivors of crime and other tragedy both at the scene and in the aftermath as cases wind through the justice system.

"We have an amazing, close knit and dedicated team of volunteers but we are a busy unit and need to make sure we have enough people to respond to the needs of our community," said coordinator Krista Levar.

"Volunteers who are accepted into the program are provided with extensive training and a volunteer experience unlike any other."

The information session will include a chance to meet with current volunteers, interact with the therapy dogs, take a look at the Victim Services work environment and learn a bit more about the program.

The session will be held at the Prince George RCMP detachment, 455 Victoria St., 7:30 p.m. start.

Those interested are asked to come early and bring government issued photo identification.
