A domestic violence police intervention can be an overwhelming experience. Victims may feel nervous and afraid. The DVCRT volunteer is specially trained to comfort victims and help them through the crisis. DVCRT volunteers provide important information to help victims understand their choices. They keep their conversations private unless there is child abuse or suicidal or homicidal issues. Volunteers may care for children while police interview the victim. They also keep the victim company while waiting for family, friends, and transportation.
