Why a Volunteer Program?

The volunteer program in the police department enhances customer service and community outreach. The police department's volunteer program helps improve quality of life in Erie by enhancing the rapport between the police department and citizens, bringing innovation and advocacy, and providing opportunities for citizens to participate and learn about the police department and local government.

Why Volunteer?
Volunteering can assist with training and career experience for obtaining a new job or changing careers. The volunteer program can also aid in citizen creativity, networking, and involvement in challenging activities. Volunteers can share new ideas and bring forth many skills and talents.
