The Police Volunteer Program allows members of the Belmont community to assist the Belmont Police Department in a number of ways. Started in 2002, the Volunteer Program strives to utilize the diverse backgrounds and experiences of residents to assist the department in carrying out a variety of activities. In its first full year, 2003, volunteers donated over 3,000 hours to the department. Since that time, volunteers have provided invaluable support to the Patrol, Investigations and Support Services units. Volunteers can function in nearly any area of the department where their skills can complement the goals of the department.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or you would like further information about the Volunteer Program, please contact the program sergeant at (650) 595-7400.
