TRENTON, N.J. (CBS) – If you live down the shore, New Jersey’s judicial system is looking for you to volunteer to assist in making sure those under court ordered guardianship are being treated right.

The Guardianship Monitoring Program cranked up in January, and while volunteers have been found in 19 counties, the state is still looking for people to step up in Atlantic and Cape May Counties.

You’d work six to 12 hours a month, reviewing compliance records and help those appointed to care for an incapacitated person to do their job.

Kristi Robinson is a liaison with the state Administrative Office of the Courts:

“Volunteers should have comfort with computers because there is a computer application that they would use in their work,” she said. “They should also have some knowledge or experience or comfort level with reviewing both legal and financial documents.”

You’ll also have to pass a criminal background check.
