MPD Seeks Domestic Violence Response Team Volunteers PDF Print E-mail

Tuesday, September 15, 2015Montclair Police Department Patch

The Montclair Police Department is seeking volunteers for its Domestic Violence Response Team (DVRT). The DVRT is a group of volunteers trained to assist victims of domestic violence by offering emergency support and information on available community resources.

The DVRT program was state mandated in 2000 with the knowledge that victims of domestic violence are often isolated and trapped in abusive relationships. Studies demonstrate that victims of domestic violence are three times more likely to return to their abusers if they are provided with little or no support. Police officers provide protection to victims of domestic violence by arresting and processing the batterer, while volunteers help the victim to feel less isolated and alone. DVRT volunteers respond to the police department to provide emotional support, information on domestic violence, community resources and a safety plan.
