Community Safety Volunteers (CSV)
The Community Safety Volunteer program is community policing in its most basic form. It is a structured way for residents to participate in helping provide for the safety and security of their own community. Volunteers support the major activities of the Police Department, such as patrol, traffic and community policing, and activities where their unique expertise and / or life experience will be of benefit.
The program has three broad goals:
· Community relations
· Neighborhood patrol
· Officer support and assistance
