The Chesterfield County Police Department is seeking volunteers to serve as Auxiliary Police Officers.
Auxiliary officers are fully trained, sworn police officers who are asked to volunteer 250 hours each year. Members of this volunteer police force contribute significantly to the agency’s ability to deliver an array of services to the community. These volunteers support the department in a variety of ways, including answering calls for service, being available for emergency deployment in adverse weather and supplementing police resources at extended crime scene investigations.
Because of the importance of this operational volunteer group to the community, the police department would like to enlist additional qualified volunteers. The next information and recruitment session for the Auxiliary Police Unit will take place on Monday, Jan. 7, 2013, at 7 p.m. at the Eanes-Pittman Public Safety Training Center, 6610 Public Safety Way, Chesterfield, VA 23832.
Auxiliary police officer applicants should be between the ages of 21 and 64. Applicants should have attained a high school diploma or GED, have a good driving record and possess a valid Virginia Driver’s License. All applicants will undergo an extensive background investigation.
Individuals interested in volunteering or for additional information on the Auxiliary Police Unit, call Carole Maxwell at 804-318-8695 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
