CHULA VISTA POLICE SEEKING SENIOR VOLUNTEER MEMBERS
Recruitment is now open for new members of the Chula Vista Police Department (CVPD) Senior Volunteer Patrol program. No law enforcement experience is necessary in the duties assigned which include services such as vacation house checks, vehicle abatement, handicapped parking enforcement and more. The CVPD Senior Volunteer Patrol allows sworn officers to conduct the more critical aspects of public safety.
To be considered for the Senior Volunteer Patrol, applicants must be at least 50 years old, have a valid driver’s license, be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, and have good communication skills. Members do not carry a weapon, perform traffic stops or make arrests. A 40-hour training academy is provided to eligible applicants.
