If you have a few hours a month to donate to a great cause, the Rocklin Police Department can use your help. Now is a great time to get involved in the expanding Rocklin Police Volunteer Program.
A well-organized volunteer program can strengthen and improve the level of service our police department delivers to the community. Being a volunteer can also provide a great deal of personal satisfaction and accomplishment.
As a volunteer with the Rocklin Police Department, you will have an opportunity to work with other dedicated volunteers and employees who take pride in what they do and how they do it. The volunteer program emphasizes and promotes teamwork, camaraderie, cooperation, communication, and professionalism. Volunteers can use their knowledge and life experience to benefit others, while receiving the personal satisfaction of knowing they are making a difference.
The Volunteer Program functions as a unit of the Rocklin Police Department, and supports the Field Services and Support Services divisions. Volunteers serve as extra “eyes, ears, and helping hands” for the police department, but do not engage in contacting, detaining, or arresting suspicious persons or criminals.
Volunteers are not permitted to carry or use weapons, and have no powers of arrest beyond those of any private person.
The Rocklin Police Department will do its best to place volunteers in assignments they will succeed in and enjoy. Assignments include greeting customers, answering phones, contacting the victims of prior crimes, assisting detectives with investigations, staffing community crime prevention events, delivering crime prevention presentations, conducting tours of the police department, marking abandoned vehicles, checking homes while people are on vacation, directing traffic, locating and reporting traffic hazards, and working with businesses and neighborhood groups to improve safety and security.
