Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Mayor's Crisis Response Team (CRT). If this is a volunteer opportunity that speaks to you, complete this application. 

CRT members are volunteers who respond to traumatic incidents at the request of the Los Angeles Police and Los Angeles Fire Departments. The CRT provides immediate on-scene crisis intervention and acts as a liaison between victims, survivors, and emergency personnel. Referrals are also given to victims and their families affected by death, violent crimes, or traumatic incidents. These incidents include homicide, suicide, serious traffic collisions, natural deaths, and multi-casualty incidents.

Those interested in volunteering are required to complete an application, attend an interview session, and complete a six-week training academy. The academy for the Mayor's Crisis Response Team provides volunteers with knowledge and hands-on training to help responders provide support, trauma intervention, and resources to survivors.

The Academy will take place at the newly remodeled LAPD ACADEMY in Elysian Park. The duration is six weeks, Monday and Thursdays (6 p.m. - 9 p.m.), and three Saturday sessions (9 a.m. - 5 p.m.) starting Thursday, September 26th. It will be imperative that you arrive early, or on-time, to each training session. Please take a moment to consider your commute to the training location prior to completing this application. The address is: 1880 Academy Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90012.

Interviews will take place Mid-August. Once you have submitted your application, it will be reviewed and you will be contacted for an in-person interview.
