Who are VIPS?

The Volunteers In Police Service or VIPS program was started in January 2001. Currently we have more than 40 volunteers of all ages and backgrounds that assist the police department in many of its everyday functions. They share a desire to do something positive about today’s crime problems and contribute to our community. VIPS contribute thousands of hours annually of volunteer service to the Department. VIPS are provided distinctive uniforms and patrol vehicles. They act as additional “eyes and ears” for the Police Department

Our Goal:

To form a partnership where trained volunteers can enhance and support the department freeing up officers and staff for higher priority duties by placing volunteers in rewarding activities which utilize their experience, interests and talents and to provide the public the opportunity to become more familiar with the services offered by the department.

Activities of the VIPS include:

Clerical and administrative support, traffic control, special events, abandoned auto abatement, radar trailer placement, vacation house checks, crime scene duties, and parking enforcement.
