VOLUNTEERS IN POLICE SERVICES (VIPS)

The VIPS mission is to provide administrative augmentation to the Police Department by utilizing the skills of non-salaried volunteers. The selection, appointment and tenure of VIPS personnel will be determined by the Chief of Police.

To be eligible, VIP personnel must be:

  • at least 18 years of age
  • be in good physical health
  • pass a police background check
  • pass an interview with police supervisors

There is no maximum age limit for service in this program, provided the individual is physically fit to perform the duties assigned.

Every effort will be made to assign volunteers according to their desires and the needs of the Kingman Police Department.

 

 

How to Become Involved in the Volunteer Program

At the Kingman Police Department, the letters VIP enjoy two distinct meanings:

Volunteers In Policing - A program involving qualified citizens who are interested in enhancing a variety of services provided by the Kingman Police Department.

Very Important Person - Is the traditional definition. The Volunteers are considered Very Important Persons by the entire staff for their selflessness in support of the department and their community.
