Services & Responsibilities

The Volunteer Program was created to form a working partnership between the community and the police to enhance communications and assist the Beaverton Police Department in the delivery of quality services. Community volunteers are recruited from various sources, including the Community Academy. They assist the agency in many ways, including:

  • Car seat clinics
  • Clerical duties
  • Computer and mapping projects
  • Department tours
  • Distributing emergency food baskets to the needy
  • Home Security Program
  • Traffic Safety Team projects

The program is not designed to have the volunteer replace professional staff, but is aimed at providing a supplementary and complementary role. Volunteers, when given appropriate training, can supplement present services and become a valuable addition to the Beaverton Police Department.
