The Saint John Police are recruiting mature, compassionate, and dependable individuals who are up to the challenge of becoming a Victim Service member.
Victim Service members are an integral part of our emergency response to critical incidents. Although they are not counsellors, they volunteer their time to provide immediate crisis support to victims and survivors of crime and sudden tragedies.
For those individuals who want to make a positive impact in the lives of others, join our Wellness and Crisis Intervention Coordinator, Laurett Nwaonumah, for a virtual information session on April 20, 2022 at 6:00 p.m. To register for the virtual session or to apply to become a Victim Service member, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
