CAPS is a volunteer program designed for civilian men or women over the age of 50 and who donate their time to making their community a safer place. This program provides an excellent opportunity for meeting people and, in some cases, forming long and lasting friendships. Typical CAPS duties may include:
- crime scene containment
- school patrol
- vehicle abandonment
- parking enforcement/non-moving violations
- vacation checks
- traffic control
- office duty
Volunteers are required to complete 40 hours of training, which will include: first aid, CPR, traffic control, safe driving, basic law, radio procedures, gangs, narcotics, crime prevention, and more.
Graduates are provided uniforms and required to wear them while on duty in order to easily identify them as CAPS personnel.
The requirements for application to the CAPS program are as follows:
you must be over the age of 50 (age requirement may be waved in special situations)
you must pass a background check
you must be able to volunteer at least 16 hours a month
- you must have a strong desire to make a difference in your community
If you are interested in joining the CAPS program, please fill out the online application. Your application will be sent to our CAPS coordinator and you will be contacted shortly.
Thank you for your interest.
