The Ashland Police Department (APD) volunteer program is seeking new members from within our community. This organizations known as VIPS (volunteers in police service) perform many duties that enhance our community.
Duties include taking paperwork Monday through Friday to the District Attorney’s office in Medford, the Medford Police Department, the County Courthouse, and juvenile division as required. In addition, our group also provides this service to both Talent and Phoenix Police Departments. Other functions can include vacation house checks, downtown foot patrol, a Monday through Friday mail courier service for pick-up and delivery of mail to various city locations and traffic control during parades and civic functions. The ideal volunteer will be someone who has the time to perform any of the available duties.
Be advised that as a minimum requirement all volunteers must have a valid Oregon driver’s license and prior to being accepted must complete paperwork which will be submitted to both federal and local law enforcement for a comprehensive background check.
To apply for this important civic duty please contact the VIP’S coordinator Colin Carnegie at the Ashland PD at (541) 552-2128. If we are unavailable, please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
