Volunteer Airport Police
Volunteer opportunities are now available with the Airport Police.With the increase in passenger air travel and construction of a new terminal, parking and roadway ahead, the Airport Police Division has had to draw on non-traditional resources in order to meet its mandate of providing a safe and secure environment for the traveling public and employees. A new program, Volunteers in Airport Policing, known as V.A.P., was designed to help with that number one priority.
The idea is to recruit and train community volunteers to support current law enforcement and security personnel and place them in positions where they could be extra eyes and ears for the Airport Police. Some of the V.A.P. volunteer duties will consist of recognizing and reporting security violations, suspicious activity, assist with traffic control, patrol the parking areas, terminals and perimeter, issue parking violations, assist in special projects and unusual occurrences, and administrative support. In addition to increasing security, the program will also help enhance the division customer service level.
The Volunteers in Airport Policing program is now actively seeking qualified volunteers. For more information about the program please view the Volunteer Police Brochure or contact the Program Coordinator, Lt. Richard Griffin, at 207-3498.
