As a Volunteer, there are vast opportunities for service. We work with each volunteer to help find the right fit regarding time commitment, special qualifications and individual volunteer goals. You can commit to one or more of the opportunities listed. If you feel you have a valuable service to offer that is not listed, we want to know that too.
Each group carries out different tasks crucial to the running of a police department. From the patrol unit doing vacation checks, to the administration unit filing paper work, the VIPS constantly help over a wide range of interest.
The VIPS, whose total hours last year exceeded 5000 hours, have become an essential role in the day to day function of the Independence Police Department.
