The Volunteers In Police Service (VIPS) program draws on the skills and abilities of community volunteers to support the Clay County Sheriff’s Office in a wide range of non-law enforcement roles. Volunteers are a valuable resource and serve in diverse capacities including clerical assignments, special projects, research, crime prevention initiatives and community events. By providing vital support services to the agency, volunteers enhance public safety and enable sworn personnel to handle critical public safety needs.
Individuals are not brought into the program unless a specific assignment that requires a VIPS is identified by department personnel. CCSO makes every attempt to match the skills and backgrounds of volunteers with the tasks to be accomplished. Although VIPS are assigned to a primary location in the department, they may also be reassigned to another area of greater need.
