The West Covina Police Department has expanded its volunteer program and is seeking new volunteers of any age. This expanded volunteer program allows citizens to channel their energy back into the community by performing non-hazardous public safety duties on a volunteer basis. This frees up police officers, who are made more available to fulfill essential emergency and law enforcement duties in the field. Volunteers work two-person teams in fully equipped marked vehicles, seven days a week, performing duties like marking abandoned or illegally parked vehicles, performing vacation house checks for residents, serving subpoenas, issuing parking citations, and more. Since the program’s inception in 1991, West Covina Police Volunteers have volunteered over 170,000 hours, marking over 14,000 abandoned or illegally parked vehicles, performing over 20,000 vacation house checks for residents, serving over 8,000 subpoenas and issuing over 30,000 parking citations. So if you are in good physical condition, possess a valid California Driver’s License, and are willing to put in a minimum of 4 hours of volunteer service per week, please call (626) 939-8500 or email us for more information.
Volunteers can assist our department and community by performing duties such as:
