There are many ways to be involved in your local community
Volunteers in Police Service is a locally-driven Citizen Corps program that allows community members to offer their time and talents to their local law enforcement agency. Volunteers in Police Service serves as a gateway to information for and about law enforcement volunteer programs and meets a volunteer's desire to serve as well as an agency's need for support.
Volunteers can be an important part of any organization and are proven to be a valuable asset to law enforcement agencies. Many volunteer with their law enforcement to fulfill civic responsibility and to give back to officers that provide for their safety. Volunteering in law enforcement benefits the agency, the volunteer, and the community.
The Volunteers in Police Service program is a logical outgrowth of the growing trend of community policing initiatives nationwide. Community- or problem-oriented policing programs have built strong bridges between law enforcement agencies and the citizens they serve. A logical expansion of this collaboration is to allow citizens to engage with their local law enforcement agencies to work together even more closely, and enhance policing services.
