Do you have a passion for helping people? Then we need you. We invite you to join an exciting, dedicated group of community members who serve Douglas County in an essential way. These are our #DCSO Victim Assistance Volunteers, and our newest volunteer is Kingston.
The Victim Assistance Program is a unit within the Investigation Division of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office. The program responds to victims of violent crimes, including Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, Child Abuse, and more. They also assist family survivors of sudden or violent death, including death notifications in cooperation with the Douglas County Coroner’s Office. Deputies contact the Victim Assistance Unit when a victim needs support, information, or referrals. Victim Advocates are essential to connecting victims to the criminal justice system.
Volunteer staff members work directly with Sheriff’s deputies, investigators, and other law enforcement agencies in Douglas County. This position requires reliability, integrity, discretion, and commitment.
