The Longmont Police Department's volunteer program began in 1986 and is now an integral part of the Department and the community. The Safety and Justice Center currently has more than 100 volunteers working in different areas within the Center. In 2009, our Safety and Justice Center volunteers, Police Explorers, Student Intern Officers, and Front Range Chaplains logged 28,800 volunteer hours. We appreciate our volunteers' commitment and dedication to helping us serve the community of Longmont better and more efficiently.
Due to the sensitivity and confidential nature of the police department, the selection process for volunteers is designed to find those individuals whose honesty and integrity are of the highest standards. Volunteer applicants must meet several requirements in order to be considered for an available position. These requirements include a criminal history check, personal interview, and fingerprint check. Depending on the volunteer position, an integrity interview, background check, and polygraph may be required as well.
Our volunteer staff support program offers a wide variety of assignments. All volunteers are trained and supervised by a police staff member. Volunteers, who must be at least 18 years old, are assigned to specific areas and divisions within the Department. All positions are unpaid volunteer assignments.
Volunteer applications can be returned to Longmont Department of Public Safety, Public Safety Outreach Manager, 225 Kimbark St., Longmont, CO 80501 (2nd Floor - Administration). Please see the instructions under each position to ensure you have the correct application.
