Volunteers in Law Enforcement

Thousands of agencies across the country use volunteers to fill vital roles in a wide range of capacities throughout the department.  Citizen volunteers help supplement and support officers and civilian personnel by allowing them to concentrate on their primary duties. Volunteer roles may include performing clerical tasks, serving as an extra set of "eyes and ears," assisting with search and rescue activities, and writing citations for accessible parking violations.  Volunteering with your local police department can be a fantastic way to give back to your community. 

For more information on serving as a police volunteer and to find a program in your area, visit the Volunteers in Police Service site.
