The Gainesville Police Department currently utilizes two types of volunteers: Level I and Level II.
Level I volunteers are our in house volunteers that are assigned to various administrative duties. Some examples of these include assisting with property and evidence, assisting the airport officers, working in crime analysis, compiling party patrol data, and also working on special assignments as requested by the operations districts. There are also many opportunities to work special events with the Crime Prevention Unit.
Level II volunteers are our Citizens on Patrol. The Citizens on Patrol is a voluntary program developed to meet the changing needs of the community and to further promote the city’s philosophy on Community Oriented Policing.
All potential GPD volunteers must:
1. Complete the background information and waiver packets as well as the volunteer application and agreement forms.
2. Once completed, you must contact personnel in order to make an appointment to drop off your forms.
