NOTICE OF JOB OPENING:

The Manhattan Police Department is currently accepting applications for (2) two full-time Police Officers.
Manhattan is a beautiful, small community of approximately 2,100 people. It sits nineteen miles west of Bozeman, Montana, which is one of the fastest-growing areas in the country and home to Montana State University. Manhattan is close enough to Bozeman to enjoy all its amenities, but far enough to escape to a much more quiet, small-town lifestyle. The surrounding area is also known for its fly fishing, hunting, skiing, hiking, and other outdoor recreational opportunities. The Big Sky Mountain resort and Bridger Mountain resort are two world-class ski areas, frequented by Manhattan residents. The Bozeman International Airport makes travel to and from the area easily accessible all year round. Yellowstone National Park is only a beautiful, 1 ½ hour drive to the south. In the fall, an elk herd of 200 plus comes to the edge of town, where it hangs out until hunting season is over. In the summer, you can look forward to the world-famous Potato Festival (look it up!) We are also home to one of the best steak houses in Montana.
When at full staff, we have 5 sworn officers; the Chief of Police, (1) one Sergeant, (1) one Detective/Patrol Officer, (2) two Patrol Officers, and a part-time Administrative Assistant. We work 12-hour shifts every other week, enjoying 4 days off. There is typically one officer on shift at a time. We work closely with surrounding agencies, including the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office, Montana Highway Patrol, and the Belgrade Police Department, so while working “by yourself” we are never truly alone.
Some of the many benefits of working for the Manhattan Police Department include:
• Being an active part of the community

Completion of specialized advocacy training, (e.g. YWCA or Crime Victim Advocate training) will satisfy six months of the experience requirement.

REPRESENTATIVE EXAMPLES OF WORK:

The Mineral County Crime Victim Advocates:

  • Assess complex needs, including safety issues, housing concerns, and the availability of financial resources for primary and secondary victims of intimate violence, stalking and sexual assault.
  • Provide or access initial crisis counseling for crime victims through phone and in-person crisis intervention while providing emotional support and education.
  • Provide emergency legal advocacy for victims, and be available to follow any legal matter through the judicial process and help clients access pro bono legal counsel, as needed.
  • Follow all statutory guidelines to screen applicants to determine eligibility; complete and file Temporary Orders of Protection (TOP); and prepare clients for TOP hearings.
  • This position must be available to be on-call some weekends and holidays.

An important piece of this position is serving as a liaison for the victim with criminal justice agencies, attorneys, medical care providers, social service agencies, and other community resources.  The CVA will:

  • Help with the completion of Restitution Reports/Affidavits; Victim Impact Statements; provide information on the Crime Victims’ Compensation Program; assist crime victims in completing applications for reimbursement from the State compensation program, and have a strong knowledge of community support services to refer clients appropriately.

This position requires a high level of confidentiality, the ability to work with diverse and often marginalized populations, and a full understanding of the Montana Advocate Privilege law.

PHYSICAL/ENVIRONMENTAL DEMANDS:

The work is primarily performed in an office setting but involves frequent walks to city and county offices.  This position may require trips to rural areas of Mineral County once it is safe for the CVA to do so, and attending training opportunities to increase the employee’s skill set.  The work involves crisis counseling with people who have experienced intimate and/or sexual violence, which creates the potential for significant emotional stress for the employee and possible exposure to violent incidents.  Work is performed in an office environment that has some safety features in place.

This position has periods of autonomy wherein the employee must be able to establish and maintain a schedule and provide accountability to one’s supervisor of time spent on the various position tasks.

GRANT FUNDED POSITION:

The Mineral County Crime Victim Advocates are funded through a competitive grant through the Office of Violence against Women (OVW) and the Violence of Crime Act.  The funding for one position is currently secure through the federal Fiscal Year 2020-2021 (ending September 30, 2021), and the second CVA position is funded through the state fiscal year (June 30, 2021).  Mineral County plans to seek continued funding for this position, but further funding is not assured.
