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!
Our Police Volunteer Unit is comprised of men and women of all ages who want to give back to their community, learn about and become part of the Cape Coral Police Department family, and have fun while doing it. Our volunteers complete a background investigation and a 1 week Police Volunteer Academy to learn the basics of our police procedures, how to operate department vehicles and equipment, direct traffic, communicate on our radios, and more.
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! For more information, contact the Police Volunteer Unit at (239) 242-3346.
