Perris: Volunteer and Explorer Recruiting Event
Perris, CA – On Saturday, June 23, 2018, from 9:00 to 1:00 PM, the Perris Police Department and the Riverside County Sheriff’s Perris Station will be conducting a Sheriff’s Volunteer and Sheriff’s Explorer Recruiting Event in the parking lot of the Food 4 Less, located at 1688 N. Perris Blvd, Perris, CA. Public safety is everybody’s business. Volunteers have always played a key role in law enforcement. By involvement in their community, citizens may determine the quality of life at their own doorsteps. The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department and the Perris Police Department welcomes volunteer service. There are many avenues available to you to fulfill this goal of making Riverside County and the city of Perris, a better and safer place to live.
Citizen volunteers do not require special law enforcement training and do not carry a weapon or make arrests. They do act as essential “eyes and ears” in service to the community while working with Sheriff’s staff. Citizen volunteers must be over the age of 18. Volunteer hours are flexible and can be adjusted to accommodate your schedule.
The Sheriff’s Explorer program is a division of the Boy Scouts of America that gives youth a hands-on look at what a career in law enforcement is really like. Explorers act as an extra set of eyes and ears for officers and assist them on various calls. They serve the community in various ways such as directing traffic at special events, crime prevention programs and light security details, and they can participate in the ride-a-long program once they become eligible. The Sheriff’s Explorer program is for young persons between the ages 14 and 20.
Police and Sheriff’s Department personnel will be present for any questions prospective applicants might have and to assist you in becoming part of our Law Enforcement Team.
