Join our PS- 417 team Today!
SafeNest is currently recruiting for our PS-417 program. PS-417 was developed by Capt. Timothy Hatchett of the Las Vegas Metro Police Department in 2017. PS stands for Project Safe. 417 is the police code for domestic violence. PS-417 Crisis Advocates are dispatched to the scene of a domestic violence call by Metro Police when an arrest has been made or there is probable cause to make an arrest. PS-417 Crisis Advocates arrive on the scene, provide a listening ear, and resources and information to those experiencing domestic violence in a non-judgmental, trauma informed manner.
Volunteers will attend a two-day DV Academy Cohort via Zoom with additional online modules to become Crisis Advocates. By attending the two-day DV Academy, volunteers will have achieved privileged status according to the Nevada Revised Statute. After the initial training, volunteers will sign up to train with PS-417 staff out in the field. PS-417 has shifts available 7 days a week. The shifts are: 3 am – 7am, 7am – 11am, 11am – 3pm, 3pm – 7pm, 7pm – 11pm, and 11pm – 3am. Volunteers will train with PS-417 staff until they feel comfortable taking calls on their own which is typically after going out on scene 5 times.
