The Middletown Township Police Department is recruiting volunteers to serve on the Middletown Domestic Violence Response Team (DVRT).
The department works with 180 Turning Lives Around to make this service available to victims of domestic violence during the initial stages of a highly emotional and traumatic experience.
The volunteer advocates with DVRT are civilian members of the community who work collaboratively with law enforcement to provide support, information, and referrals to victims of domestic violence at Middletown Police Headquarters. Advocates also discuss with victims safety planning and their legal rights in regard to obtaining a Temporary Restraining Order.
180 Turning Lives Around will be conducting an intensive 40-hour mandatory training course for Domestic Violence Response Team (DVRT) volunteers March 18 to April 10, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 6 p.m. - 9:30 p.m, at Manalapan Police Headquarters, 120 County Road 522. Applications are currently being accepted.
Please contact SFC William Colangelo, Middletown Police Department, DVRT DVLO, at 732-615-2041 or email@example.com to obtain an application or for additional information.
