Emergency Service Training for Volunteers

The Department of Justice/ Office for Victims of Crime is distributing the new "Good Samaritans: Volunteers Helping Victims Program Handbook and Training Guide" designed to train volunteers to provide emergency services to victims. These services include securing victims' homes after a break-in, offering emotional support, and linking victims with community services. This is a useful resource for volunteer recruitment and training and can be accessed at: www.ovc.gov/publications/infores/Good_Samaritans/welcome.html.
