Police Department Volunteer Opportunities

The Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) Program
 is to provide volunteer support staff to aid police personnel in the delivery of services to the citizens of Anaheim. VIPS representatives supplement existing departmental services, freeing paid employees to perform their necessary duties. VIPS representatives are placed in areas which utilize their skills, talents and interests, while offering a challenging and rewarding experience. Most importantly, VIPS representatives build community relations by giving the public the opportunity to become involved in the day to day activities of their police department. Access the VIPS Program resource for more information.
