Police Volunteers

Why are volunteers important in police service?

Law enforcement agencies often struggle to meet ever-increasing public safety challenges with limited resources. Since September 11, 2001, this problem has intensified the need to expend additional resources for homeland security efforts. Volunteers can fill critical gaps in program support and enhance services, enabling law enforcement agencies to respond more effectively to enforcement and policing priorities.

The Lone Tree Volunteers program was established in 2007 to promote effective use of the many citizens of Lone Tree who wish to donate their time and talents to further the goals of the department. The mission of the Lone Tree Police Department Volunteer Program is to serve as a support service to the Lone Tree Police Department, enhancing the effectiveness of community policing through the provision of administrative and support services. 

The Lone Tree Police Department's Volunteer program offers a variety of opportunities for citizens to get involved with the Department. We request that our volunteers serve on average four volunteer hours per week to the agency throughout the year. Some of the assignment opportunities include: 

  • Customer Service/Records Specialists

  • Crime Prevention Coordinator

  • Coyote Education Team

  • Citizens’ Police Academy Assistant

  • Patrol Support

  • Special Projects Assistant

  • Victim Services Advocate

Citizens volunteering to work in the department not only benefit department service delivery, they also gain an opportunity to both learn about police functions and contribute part of themselves to the organization which serves the Lone Tree Community. The result is growth in citizen understanding and support of the Lone Tree Police Department as well as greater understanding and appreciation of citizens by police personnel.
