Volunteers In Police Service
The Noble Police Department is actively seeking volunteers to assist with specialties that would enhance the services that are provided. Volunteers are a valuable resource that are greatly appreciate and help the police respond more effectively to enforcement and policing priorities.
Volunteering with the Department would allow for a wide range of activities that would give citizens meaningful opportunities to take an active role in their own public safety.
The Department encourages its volunteers to suggest new and better ways to involve citizens in preventing and resisting crime. Together, the Department and the volunteers turn those good ideas into realities that benefit the whole City.
The Noble Police Department currently has two types of volunteers but is looking at expanding as the program expands. The following are examples of the type of volunteer and the duties that could be performed.
SUPPORT VOLUNTEERS – These volunteers assist inside the police department with many administrative tasks such as callbacks to victims, data entry, filing, copying, fingerprinting citizens, assisting at the animal shelter, statistical reports, computer assistance, working in the communication division, and training of fellow volunteers.
PATROL VOLUNTEERS – These volunteers augment sworn officers in situations such as bicycle registrations, business emergency contact records, code violations, minor traffic crashes (non-injury/parking lot), directed patrols, disabled vehicles, radar speed surveys, message deliveries, road obstructions, school crossing details, special events (concerts, DUI checkpoints), traffic direction, watering violations, and welfare checks are just a few of the responsibilities of a Reserve Police Officer.
