[ARCHIVED] Volunteers Sought for Crisis Intervention Response Team

CIRT Volunteers Sought

The Las Cruces Police Department’s Victims’ Assistance Unit is accepting applications for volunteers interested in joining CIRT, the Crisis Intervention Response Team.
 
The Crisis Intervention Response Team works with police officers and detectives by helping victims of crimes. Volunteering for the team is a unique opportunity for those interested in a career in law enforcement, as a victim’s advocate, and college students who want experience in law enforcement or social work.

CIRT volunteers must:

  • Be at least 18 years old.
  • Have a valid New Mexico driver’s license.
  • Have a vehicle with proof of insurance and registration.
  • Live in Las Cruces or within close proximity to the city.
  • Pass a criminal background check.


CIRT volunteers serve on-call overnight hours primarily on weekends. The Las Cruces Police Department provides 40 hours of training which is mandatory and must be completed prior to serving as a volunteer.

Applications will be accepted until 4 p.m. Friday, September 24. Late applications will not be accepted. Training for those accepted will begin October 6.

For applications or information about CIRT contact Sofia Rangel, sorangel@las-cruces.org, or Leonel Meraz at mameraz@las-cruces.org. Questions can also be directed to the LCPD's Victims’ Assistance Unit at 575/528-4111.
