Service volunteers who work alongside the employees of the Grand Junction Police Department donate over 6,000 hours per year. The volunteers represent a broad range of ages, from teenagers to senior citizens.
GJPD Service Volunteers are active in all divisions of the department and perform a variety of tasks including: clerical work, computer entry, statistical analysis, providing tours, extra patrol (Volunteer Patrol), investigation assistance, community presentations, neighborhood speed control, graffiti and vacation checks. Volunteers have the opportunity to help enhance services, enabling police officers to respond more effectively to enforcement and policing priorities.
In addition, the Grand Junction Police Department provides opportunities for college and high school students interested in working in unpaid intern and volunteer positions.
