Supporting Law Enforcement Agencies
Volunteers provide a value-added level of support to our community. While all agencies are designed and staffed to provide appropriate policing and law enforcement services to the community, there is always more to do!
Volunteers allow law enforcement agencies and officers to focus on policing and enforcement by taking on these additional duties, for example:
Participating in community meetings to learn about citizen concerns
Assisting with special events
Following up with victims of certain types of crimes and provide them with referrals to other agencies
Participating in citizen patrol programs
Providing an array of clerical, data, an document support to department staff
Support law enforcement agencies use of technology, particularly law enforcement-relevant software applications
As you can see from the above list, officers engaged in responding to community needs (9-1-1 calls, citizen complaints) need a great deal of support in many other areas of departmental operations. Volunteers can provide that support and by doing so, enhance the value and effectiveness of their local law enforcement agency. Volunteer Application
