Short Term Volunteer

Short Term Volunteers are invaluable to our VAPP program. They serve periodically at police and community events. They are eligible to serve in other ways and more often when needed. An STV position would be a perfect fit for full-time workers and college students. 

Example of positions available:

  • Community Events (Safety Night, State Fair Parade, etc.)
  • Police Events (Graduation, Ice Cup, etc.)
  • Short notice needs (clerical, training, etc.)

Long Term Volunteers

Long Term Volunteers are those that  consistently volunteer with the police department, daily, weekly or monthly. They are able to serve at least 8 volunteer hours a month with VAPP. An LTV position would be a perfect fit for retirees and stay-at-home parents.

Example of positions available:

  • Handicap Parking Enforcement
  • Training scenario acting
  • Administrative work to support police and office staff
