Auxiliary Police Officers
The Auxiliary Police Force was established to allow citizens the ability to assist their local law enforcement agency in various capacities in a volunteer/unpaid capacity. While not sworn or certified police officers the Auxiliary assist the Police Department at large public gatherings, emergency operations, cart path patrol, and general neighborhood and business watch patrols. Current members include some very dedicated individuals with very diverse backgrounds. Positions also exist in the Auxiliary Police Force for administrative positions at Headquarters for qualified citizens based on their qualifications.
The Auxiliary Police Force has several fund raising activities which support department operations and officers. There are funds available for rewards, donations of equipment, ballistic vests, and a memorial fund to assist officers and their families in times of need.
