Volunteer Program

Volunteers aid in the overall efficiency of our organization. With greater demands placed on law enforcement today, volunteers are absolutely vital to ensure that our officers have the time to focus on their key tasks. Volunteers are not utilized to replace sworn or other paid positions within the Boca Raton Police Services Department, but rather to enhance the efficiency of the agency. As a result, this maximizes the effectiveness of police personnel, allowing the officers more time to patrol.

Why Volunteer?

  • To learn more about law enforcement
  • To develop job skills
  • To help your community
  • To make new friends

Who is Qualified?

  • Men and woman 18 year of age or older
  • Applicants who possess either a High School Diploma or G.E.D. equivalent
  • Candidates who successfully meet the selection criteria of the Boca Raton Police Services Departments Volunteer application process including a background investigation

Where do volunteers work?

Fingerprinting Police Department/Town Center Mall sub-station
Parking Enforcement Town Center Mall
Walking Patrols Town Center Mall
Court Courier*          Police Department
Trespass Affidavit Program* Crime Prevention Unit

After successfully completing the application process, the volunteer will be properly trained for their assigned position.  Each volunteer will be issued a uniform and City identification badge and must comply with all the City of Boca Raton personnel rules and regulations.   

The Boca Raton Police Services Department values our volunteers and is very appreciative of their skills and commitment to the community.  Just a few hours a week can make a BIG difference. Put your skills and life experiences to work for your community and come join our team.
