Our Volunteers are dedicated men and women who give their time and services to help make the city of Livermore a safer place to live and work. Volunteers enable the police department to expand and enhance our services to the community.
Our Volunteers are trained to perform various duties that support the department. We currently have several Volunteers working dedicated positions in areas such as; Records, Crime Prevention, Traffic and Horizons.
We have an Advisory Board that works with the Volunteer Coordinator on such things as: event coordination, meeting planning and minutes, communication and general direction of the group.
Current board members are: Patrick Sullivan, Dave Tindle, Allen Beck, Phil Sardinia and Ted Tsuda.
Along with the volunteers working in dedicated positions, there are a variety of events and programs that occur during the year that a volunteer can become involved in.
To become a Volunteer with the Livermore Police Department you must first complete the Citizens Police Academy. This Academy is a (17) week course designed to give citizens an orientation to the Livermore Police Department and the law enforcement profession. It is not the same as the regular academy that trains police officer recruits. Citizens who have successfully completed this program will become a member of the Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association, whose members are eligible to volunteer at the department's direction.
