(July 10, 2019) - The Cape Coral Police Volunteer Unit (PVU) is now accepting applications for its upcoming academy class for those interested in becoming a member of the Cape Coral Police Department Police Volunteer Unit.  

The next Cape Coral Police Volunteer Unit academy runs in mid-October (exact week to be determined). It will run for one week, Monday to Friday, from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. This academy is a fun and informative combination of classroom, lecture, and practical exercises that prepares new volunteers to hit the streets. Recruits will learn the basics of police procedures, how to operate department vehicles and equipment, direct traffic, communicate on our radios, and more.

The Cape Coral Police Department has an incredibly active and vibrant Police Volunteer Unit. From administrative tasks at Police Headquarters to checking vacant homes for vacationing residents, to helping patrol the roads and waterways of Cape Coral, our Police Volunteer Unit is busy giving back to the community and helping to make Cape Coral a safe place to live, work, and play. The Cape Coral Police Department Police Volunteer Unit provides over $1 million/year in in-kind services every year!

If you have some time, and an interest in both giving back to your community and becoming part of a world-class law enforcement agency, the Cape Coral Police Department Police Volunteer Unit may be for you!    Download the application at the link below, fill it out and drop it off at the Cape Coral Police Department.  Application deadline is to be determined, but will be announced in advance of the determined end date.  For more information, contact the Police Volunteer Unit at (239) 242-3346, and visit the PVU portion of our website here.
