Consider training to be a PV VIP
The Prescott Valley Police Department continually seeks qualified citizens to join our department as we strive to serve our community. Volunteers receive valuable training and insight concerning the functions of our police department and the criminal justice system.
Recently members of the Traffic Unit taught a 4-hour class to VIPs (Volunteers in Policing) on traffic control. VIPs learned how to safely direct traffic at intersections, set up cones and taper lanes to shut down lanes and close roadways. VIPs also learned how to set up the radar trailer and how to download data from the trailer, which assists police traffic enforcement efforts.
We recognize our department would be unable to provide some of our enhanced support services if it were not for our volunteers. Volunteers assist officers and civilian staff by allowing them to concentrate on their assigned tasks, thus contributing toward making Prescott Valley a safer place to live and work.
Prescott Valley Police Department has many roles and opportunities for volunteers to fill. Here are some of opportunities we have available:
- Records / Administrative Aide (office support, front window receptionist, clerical, filing, etc.)
- Citizen Police Patrol (motorist assists, vacation house watch, traffic control, etc.)
- Investigative Aide
- Range Assistant
- Emergency Operations Center (set up team)
Prescott Valley Police Department can be contacted at (928) 772-9267 for non-emergencies, 911 for emergencies. Yavapai County Silent witness is 1-800-932-3232.
