The Victim Support Unit at the HB SAPS is there for victims of crime and we provide counselling, debriefing and practical/legislative advice/assistance as required.
We also can refer to other agencies, like Community Cohesion or Government.
In terms of volunteers, this is an entirely voluntary group, where you are trained and then are required to do duty in a committed slot once a week and to attend monthly debriefing sessions on the first Monday of each month.
The slots run 7 days a week. 08h00 – 14h00, 14h00 – 20h00, 20h00 – 08h00.
We do the training three times a year. We are due for another round of training in January/February 2016.
