Accepting Applications for Volunteers In Police Services (VIPS) Program

Alexandria PD will be accepting applications for the Volunteers in Police Services Program. We are currently in need of ten people to start the class in the early fall. This class will be for regular patrol VIPS and School VIPS.

The Alexandria Police Department utilizes the voluntary services of local citizens to enhance existing police services and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the organization.

The Volunteers In Police Services (VIPS) Program is a highly structured volunteer program that falls under a para-military hierarchy. The VIPS Program is for interested citizens who wish to volunteer their time as non-sworn, non-paid members of the department. The requested commitment for all volunteers (if at all possible) is twenty four (24) hours per three months/quarter.

If you are interested or would like further information, please contact Sgt. Natalie Selby at 859-635-4126 ext. #51 or email: nselby@alexandriaky.org.
