(November 10, 2015)-  Would you like to serve your community by volunteering a few hours each week?

The Cape Coral Police Volunteer Unit (PVU) will be holding an academy class the week of February 8, 2016 at Cape Coral Police Department Headquarters.

Our Patrol Division needs volunteers. The Patrol Division patrols the streets of Cape Coral, assisting with the enforcement of non-moving violations such as handicap parking, parking in a fire lane, median parking, parking on a sidewalk, parking in front of a fire hydrant, etc.

PVU Volunteers do vacation house checks, direct traffic at crashes, etc. They work special events such as Red, White and Boom, the Coconut Festival, etc. and other events as assigned. PVU Volunteers also make deliveries to the court system in Cape Coral and Ft. Myers.

If you are interested in this exciting opportunity, go to the Cape Coral Police Department Headquarters building at 1100 Cultural Park Blvd., and fill out an application. Applicants will be interviewed, fingerprinted and must successfully complete a background check. Applicants must be over 21 years of age, a resident of Lee County and possess a valid Florida driver’s license.  Upon successful completion of the academy classes, you must volunteer at least 16 hours per month.

Soon, you could be wearing a police uniform in one of our 14 volunteer police cars.

The deadline for applications is December 23, 2015.  For more information, call 239-242-3346.
