Police Volunteer Program

The Lakeport Police Department maintains an active professional Police Volunteer Program.  In an effort to further build the program, we are actively seeking new volunteers and plan to hold a volunteer training academy in the very near future.  We have volunteer support assignments available in both the administrative and operations divisions of the department which include Investigations, Parking Enforcement, Patrol, Property & Evidence, Records & Support Services and Animal Control.  This is an exciting opportunity for community members to be part of their police department

Our volunteer program complies with the best police practices for law enforcement volunteer programs and follows guidelines of the International Association of Chiefs of Police Volunteers in Police Service program.

All applicants are required to complete an application, interview and full Law Enforcement background investigation process prior to being placed as a department volunteer.  For further information please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Lieutenant Jason Ferguson at (707) 263-5491 ext. 13 or by email at 

Interested persons are also encouraged to stop by the police station and talk to any of our staff or volunteers in order to learn more about the department.
