The training will be held on Fridays and Saturdays on the campus of William Paterson University. It will begin in September and run for 10 weeks.

The group is training volunteer advocates to provide support, advocacy, information, and referrals to survivors of domestic violence at local police departments. The group says that anyone interested in making a difference in the lives of domestic abuse survivors should consider volunteering time and energy for this worthwhile cause.  Volunteers should be caring, compassionate, motivated and empathetic.
