Volunteers in Policing Service - VIPS

This 8-hour course is designed to acquaint participants with the VIPS initiative and to encourage registration by police departments as VIPS members.  It is also designed to generate ideas on how to sustain meaningful and successful initiatives in police volunteerism in their communities by tapping civilian volunteers for supplemental activities to free up officers for frontline duty.
