[ARCHIVED] Volunteers Sought for Crisis Intervention Response Team

Volunteer City of Las Cruces

The Las Cruces Police Department’s Victims’ Assistance Unit is accepting applications for volunteers interested in joining CIRT – the Crisis Intervention Response Team.

The Crisis Intervention Response Team works with police officers and detectives by helping victims of crimes. Volunteering for the team is a unique opportunity for those interested in a career in law enforcement, as a victim’s advocate, or college students who want experience in law enforcement or social work.

CIRT volunteers must:

  • Be at least 18 years old.
  • Have a valid New Mexico driver’s license.
  • Have a vehicle along with proof of insurance and registration.
  • Live within Las Cruces or in close proximity to the city.
  • Pass a criminal background check.

CIRT volunteers serve on-call overnight hours primarily on weekends. The Las Cruces Police Department provides 40 hours of training which is mandatory and must be completed prior to serving as a volunteer.

Applications are being accepted until 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26. Late applications will not be accepted. Training for those accepted will begin Oct. 2.

For applications or more information on the Crisis Intervention Response Team contact Richard Hernandez at richernandez@las-cruces.org, Lisa Hamilton at lhamilton@las-cruces.org or call the Las Cruces Police Department’s Victims’ Assistance Unit at (575) 528-4111.
