The Mint Hill Police Department is accepting applications for its volunteer program.
The department’s Volunteers in Police Service, an initiative sponsored by the International Association of Chiefs of Police, is open to area adults. Law enforcement experience isn’t required.
Volunteers will receive classroom and hands-on instruction from officers before beginning their volunteer duties. Among those tasks could be: directing traffic; patrolling neighborhoods; answering phones; working security at festivals and helping school resource officers. The department has installed yellow, “civilian,” lights into two vehicles that volunteers may drive. Volunteers must have a background check.
