Volunteers in Policing

Volunteers in Policing (VIPs) are alumni of the Citizen Police Academy who completed additional training in radio procedures, patrol techniques, and observation of possible criminal activity.

They may volunteer with daily tasks at police headquarters, such as staffing the front desk, helping with vehicle maintenance tasks, assisting the Internal Affairs and Record Units, and doing clerical work for the Criminal Investigations Division.

For more information on becoming a VIP, call the Community Relations Unit at 214.509.4359.
