    The Bellevue Police department offers a robust volunteer program that attracts dedicated community members wanting to serve and assist the department in providing a high level of service. The volunteers fill a wide variety of positions that allow officers to focus on primary policing duties. The volunteer positions include Community Substation Attendant, Bicycle Recovery Coordinator, Police Vehicle Maintenance Coordinator, Crime Victim Assistance Specialist, Pawn Shop Associate, Event Ambassador and more.

    Assignments are based on openings, as well as interest, qualifications and availability to serve.

    The Bellevue Police Department Community and Police in Partnership Volunteers are community members who 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.
