Community Volunteer Patrol
The Community Volunteers are a group of civic-minded residents who have expressed an interest in working toward a better community. The volunteers are trained in police operations during an eight-session Volunteer Academy. Once they have completed the training, the volunteers are released for ride-a-longs, patrol, district attorney paperwork delivery and community event assistance. Investigators and patrol officers normally conduct these details, their time is free providing direct services to the Community.
This program is part of the overall Community Oriented Policing and Problem Solving Philosophy that is employed by the Department and City Government of Dinuba. The Program is a relationship building activity used by the front line officers and supervisors to provide opportunity for communications with the community. It has been very effective in identifying concerns, problems and approaches in dealing with issues.
