The Woodland Police Department, in an effort to increase its community presence and outreach activities, is recruiting volunteers to expand its Volunteers in Policing (ViP) program. This program actively supports the City’s goals of 1) maintaining Woodland’s quality of life by ensuring the highest level of public safety through the development of a volunteer program at the Police Department; and 2) fiscal responsibility by the creative utilization of volunteers to assist in community outreach.
ViPs will have an opportunity to perform a variety of duties within the Police Department:
The ViP Program is made up of individuals from the community and the surrounding area who have a desire to serve the citizens of Woodland in partnership with the men and women of the Woodland Police Department.
The ideal ViP will be enthusiastic, approachable, responsible and service-oriented with a strong desire to preserve the quality of life in our city. As a ViP you will be provided with a professional uniform and identification to show your commitment and affiliation to our Department. All volunteers will have access to the ViP vehicles for use throughout the City along with workstations for office work. The Department will also provide proper training in all aspects of police volunteer work.
For more information and for an application packet, please contact the ViP program at VIP@cityofwoodland.org or call us at (530) 661-7833.
