The Sequim Police Department is seeking applicants for its Volunteers in Police Service program.
Known as VIPS, these citizen volunteers perform services to the public that the police department would not have the staffing to be able to provide. Some of the duties are vacation house checks, child car seat checks, issuing handicap parking violation citations, traffic control, and acting as additional eyes and ears for the police, as well as ambassadors for the City of Sequim during special events. They help in the front office answering phones, filing, issuing licenses and working on special projects.
Applicants must meet the minimum qualifications by being 21 years or older, Sequim/Clallam County residents, able to pass a background check and having a desire to help their community.
Volunteers in Police Service applications are available at the Sequim Police Department, 609 W. Washington St., or online at www.sequimwa.gov/police. Call the Sequim Police business office with questions at 683-7227 between 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday.
