Gary Pierce needs volunteers to help him watch out for victims of domestic violence.
Pierce, who oversees the Courtwatch program for both Circuit and District courts, explained the role of a Courtwatch volunteer. They monitor civil court cases involving domestic violence. They ensure that the victims are treated fairly, collect information from court proceedings, work to increase the court system efficiency, ensure victim rights, issue reports, and more.
"We're hoping to get people with an interest in the court system and who want an up close view at the justice system," said Pierce.
