The Support Services Bureau manages dispatch for police and fire, crime trend analysis, warrants, records and crime analysis, community resource programs, youth programs, Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) program, victim services, Chaplains program, animal calls for service, nuisance, code violation, and rabies control. The Support Services has a Community Resource Team.
This team provides home inspections and conducts presentations to citizens on crime prevention.
The Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association (CPAAA) is a police department sanctioned organization that works with the Community Resource Officer to support community programs like Blue Santa, National Night Out, Safety Events, and many other programs. They are often the first responders to assists when needed in any emergency. Many CPAAA members volunteer to work in jobs internal to the police department.
All volunteer groups wear special attire that defines their volunteer group. They are recruited through our VIPS Program. Volunteer hours are reported monthly through our VIPS Volunteer Coordinator.
