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.

  • Have a valid New Mexico driver’s license.
  • Have a vehicle with proof of insurance and registration.
  • Live in Las Cruces or within 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 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 24. Late applications will not be accepted. Training for those accepted will begin Oct. 6.
