Volunteer for the Police Department

Residents just like you have provided valuable support to the Pasadena Police Department for more than 20 years.

More than 140 active volunteers help with a variety of tasks in about a dozen sections of the department, logging nearly 16,000 hours last year alone.

Assistance is needed with the Citizens Assisting Pasadena Police (CAPP) in patrol, Youth Accountability, Values-Based Review and Use-of-Force boards, Parade Watch, Safe Shopping detail, Missing Persons Volunteer Investigators Unit, Chaplains, Equestrian Unit, and Community Response to Eradicate and Deter Identity Theft (CREDIT) team.

Volunteers are screened and trained during a 12-week Citizen Police Academy, which gives a behind-the-scenes look at the department’s many functions. After successful completion of a background check, you’ll get hands-on training by department staff when you begin your specialized assignment.

The demand for police volunteers has never been higher and new opportunities are growing. Learn more by e-mailing nbazzo@cityofpasadena.net or calling 744-7652.
