Police and Fire Volunteer Opportunities

Please note, all volunteers must first successfully complete the Southlake Citizens Academy before being able to volunteer with any program listed below. The need to complete the Citizens Academy is required due to the sensitive nature of the Police and Fire Department operations. Valuable information and training is gained through Citizens Academy that will help an individual understand the inner workings of each department.

Citizens on Patrol (COP)

Members of Southlake Citizens on Patrol program are additional eyes and ears of the Police Department. These members choose to serve in a patrol capacity. COP members patrol neighborhoods, business areas and parks, reporting any suspicious or criminal activity to the police.

Volunteers in Police Services (VIPS)

VIPS members are able to give back by offering their skills, support and expertise to the Police Department in an administrative capacity. Tasks could include office administration, special projects or events, or working with Municipal Court.

Fire Rehab

Fire Rehab members work in a team environment and respond to fire or training scenes to support firefighters. The need for these on-scene rehab efforts cannot be understated: they protect the firefighters' health and safety.
