Volunteers in Policing (VIPs)


Volunteers can be an important part of any organization and are proven to be a valuable asset to law enforcement agencies. Volunteers help to increase police responsiveness, service delivery, and information input. In addition, volunteers can bring new skills and expertise to the job and prompt new enthusiasm. Incorporating volunteers into a law enforcement environment allows the department to achieve the best possible public safety product, beyond what a department’s budget can purchase.
Volunteers were incorporated to make communities safer and stronger by creating a partnership between citizens and police to curb crime in our neighborhoods. Qualified volunteers are assigned specific tasks and duties that can create efficiencies for the department and improve services to the community. 

How to become a VIPS

The first step to becoming a VIP with the Port Huron Police Department is to attend the Citizens’ Police Academy. Participants in the CPA will be introduced to the Volunteers in Policing program and have an opportunity to apply to become a volunteer upon completion of the Citizens’ Police Academy.
