Volunteers On Patrol

By Anthony Saude

Diamond Bar – Are you the type of person that cares what happens to their neighbors and community? Do you feel that it is your civil duty to report a crime or wrongdoing in your neighborhood? The City of Diamond Bar has a program in place that you may be a good fit for.

The Volunteers on Patrol Program in the City of Diamond Bar is looking for individuals who are interested in being the “extra eyes and ears” for local law enforcement. Members of the Community Volunteer Patrol contribute thousands of yours each year to help patrol the City of Diamond Bar.

The job of a volunteer is simple, observe and report crimes and suspicious or unusual activity; conduct vacations checks; report graffiti vandalism; keep an eye on school and park activities; and check on the general welfare of elderly and shut in residents.

Members of the Volunteer become a representative of the Sheriff’s Department, as well the city and county administration so it is essential that they maintain an image of professionalism at all times. Their appearance, demeanor and professionalism must be above reproach while serving in the program.

The Volunteer Mission Statement for the LASD Civilian Volunteers is be dedicated to providing excellent service through relationships that build trust, create a safe environment, and enhance the quality of life in the community within a “Tradition of Service.

Is this program for you? To become a Diamond Bar Volunteer Patrol member all you do is contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department by calling 909-595-2264.
