Volunteers must fill out a Citizen on Patrol Application Form (PDF) and undergo a background check to ascertain whether they qualify to represent this agency.

Background Checks

These background checks won't be as in-depth as those to which our sworn officers are subjected, but a basic check of driving records, criminal records, and character references will be required.

Oral Interview

If this background check proves that an applicant is qualified he/she will then meet with an oral interview panel made up of both law enforcement and civilian representatives.


Applicants will be required to meet the same ethical and professional standards of conduct, integrity, and appearance as are required of our sworn officers.
