Citizen Volunteers (CVPs)
One of the most important aspects of the Beaumont Police Department volunteer program is the diversity of responsibilities that volunteers undertake on a daily basis. Volunteers create and maintain a delicate balance in the Department by providing essential services in both sworn and civilian-related duties. In this way, volunteers serve as a bridge between officers and civilians as they represent their communities in all aspects of Department-related functions.
Citizen Volunteers are proud representatives of the community. They are highly visible while on patrol. The primary objectives for the volunteers are to prevent crime by mere presence, or identify public hazards. Volunteers also act as the eyes and ears of the Beaumont Police Department by identifying suspicious activities, crimes in progress, or dangerous circumstances. The volunteers do not take action themselves, but notify the proper authorities for handling.
The following list represents a sample of the variety of programs that are open to volunteer involvement.
The Volunteers on Patrol accept their mission to serve the community with the enduring belief that in so doing they will maintain the highest level of safety, quality of life, and the beauty of community that everyone is entitled to.
