Kingston Police Community Volunteers Hold Recruitment Drive

Published on: 2015/09/02 - in Featured Releases

The Kingston Police Community Volunteers are looking for a few good people. They are a group of 60 uniformed citizens who assist the Kingston Police Force with non-confrontational activities. They act as extra eyes and ears for the Kingston Police. While out on patrol they watch for anything out of the ordinary. They will then contact police dispatchers over their radios that will then send officers to deal with the problem.

They are also called upon to conduct searches for missing person or evidence from a crime scene. The Kingston Police Community Volunteers are a multi tasked force of citizens who work hand in hand with the Kingston Police at over 80 special events each year. They also assist with Child I.D. & Child car seat clinics to help make our community safer.

On Saturday September 19th, from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. the Kingston Police Community Volunteers will be holding an information session at the Kingston Police Headquarters at 705 Division Street. Displays will be set up showing the many activities the volunteers are involved with, applications will be available for pick up and/or completion on site and members will be on hand to answer any of your questions.

There is no cost to join or compensation for members of the Kingston Police Community Volunteers, applicants must undergo a police screening check and have a valid driver’s license. The only other restriction is that you must be 18 years of age or older. Members must commit to a minimum of 8 hours of patrol and attend one meeting per month.

For more information call (613) 549-4660 ext. 2277 or e-mail kpcvcoordinator@kpf.ca

Applications are also available online at www.kpcv.com, or at the front desk of Kingston Police headquarters.

The deadline for 2015/2016 intake is September 30th, 2015.
