Volunteer Police Programs 101
Did you know that half of all US departments employ fewer than 10 officers… and that 87% of all local and state police agencies have 49 or fewer officers? This means that most of you are responding to thousands of calls each year with minimal resources and are often left shorthanded when staff call in sick, require training, or go on vacation.
With a limited budget, you can’t just hire more officers, you have to think of new ways to tackle this problem.
