Bellevue police volunteers serve as “extra eyes, ears and helping hands” for the Police Department. They do NOT engage in contacting or arresting persons or criminals. Volunteers are NOT sworn police officers and do NOT carry weapons.
NOTE: The Police Department cannot accommodate group volunteer projects, court-mandated community service or high school community service projects.
