Once training is complete, a new VAP will shadow a veteran volunteer until they are comfortable responding on their own. VAP’s are then asked to sign-up for at least three 12 hour shifts per month. Shifts can be selected according to your schedule and time off for vacation, etc. is accommodated. We also ask that you attend our monthly information and training meeting.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the Victim Assistance Program, simply fill out an application or contact the Mesa County Sheriff's Office Victim Advocate Coordinator.
