|Citizen's Volunteer Program|
The La Porte Police Department’s Volunteer Program was started in March of 2009 and is open to anyone 18 years of age or older. Although the program consists primarily of citizens who have completed the Citizens Police Academy, it is not a requirement to become a Volunteer. The main objective of the program is to foster teamwork between the Police Department and the citizens we serve. http://www.lpcpaaa.org/
Additional goals for the program are to give Volunteers a basic understanding of the daily operations of the Police Department, gain assistance from our Volunteers with upcoming community events, and provide an opportunity for Volunteers to serve the community in which they live. Our Volunteers assist the Police Department with community events such as Sylvan Beach Day, National Night Out, Fourth of July Festivities, National Police Week, Christmas on Main Street, The City of La Porte Health and Safety Fair, and The Battle of San Jacinto Triathlon. In addition to these events, some of our Volunteers will have an opportunity to be a part of the day-to-day operations at the police station by providing help in various departments such as our Crime Victims Liaison’s Office and the Records Division.
We are excited about our Volunteer Program and look forward to its continued growth. If you or anyone you know is interested in becoming a Volunteer, please contact P.A.R. Officer Robyn Gallion at (281) 842-3162.
