The Lethbridge Police Victim-Witness Services Unit is recruiting volunteers.

Last year, volunteers provided 23,214 hours of emotional and practical support to those who needed help navigating their personal lives and the justice system after experiencing or witnessing crime or tragedy.

The program has been operating in Lethbridge since 1991.

If you’re interested in learning more about becoming a Crisis Support Worker, VSU will be hosting an information session next week.
