Citizen Volunteer Program
Since its inception in 1992, the Citizen Volunteer Program has given residents of DuPage County the opportunity to both assist, and learn about, their Sheriff's Office.
Those who become part of the program are trained to work in various divisions within the Office, or in some cases, to assist deputies with non-confrontational duties outside of the Office.
Volunteers who assist deputies in the field are provided with uniforms and cars that identify them as civilian volunteers. These volunteers may act as an "eyes and ears patrol," direct traffic at accident scenes, assist at roadside safety checkpoints, and help secure crime scenes. They also help DuPage residents by keeping an eye on their home while they are out of town, and also help those who may be locked out of their home or car.
Every year Sheriff's Office citizen volunteers donate in excess of 2,500 hours to the DuPage County community.
Anyone interested in becoming a part of the Citizen Volunteer Program may contact the Community Resource Unit at 630-407-2317.
