The Civilian Volunteer Program is administered by the Operations Division. The goal of the program is to expand and enhance existing services through involvement of volunteers in service delivery. Volunteers serve in many different capacities within the department from answering telephones, filing, and transporting police vehicles to the city garage for maintenance and repair. The Police Department also offers internships to high school and college students. Recent additions to the Volunteer Program include "Friends of Animal Control" and H.E.L.P. (Humane Enlightenment Learning Program) for youths between the ages of 13 and 18.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please call us directly at (757) 385-4970.
