ROSCOMMON – Have you been looking for a way to help others in your community? Roscommon County Victim Services Unit (VSU) needs volunteers.
Roscommon County Victim Service Unit is available to provide short term comfort and compassionate assistance by giving direction to victims and/or survivors of a catastrophic crisis or incident; and when appropriate, function as a liaison between the victim/survivor and law enforcement officers.

- National Night Out Against Crime
- Firemen’s Memorial Festival
- Bluegill Festival Family Night
- Senior Citizen Christmas Basket Program
- Shop with a Hero; and
- VSU golf outing.
The VSU operates under the guidance and at the direction of the Roscommon County Sheriff Department. Meetings are held the second Monday of the month. Training is provided.
