By Staff | Jun 26, 2015

Would you like to serve your community by volunteering a few hours each week?

The Cape Coral Police Volunteer Unit will hold an academy class the week of Sept. 14, at Police Headquarters. Upon successful completion of the academy classes, you must volunteer at least 16 hours per month.

Our patrol division needs volunteers. The patrol division patrols the streets of Cape Coral, assisting with the enforcement of non-moving violations such as handicap parking, parking in a fire lane, median parking, parking on a sidewalk, parking in front of a fire hydrant, etc.

They do vacation house checks, direct traffic at crashes, etc. They work special events such as Red, White and Boom, the Coconut Festival, etc. and other events as assigned. They make deliveries to the court system in Cape Coral and Ft. Myers.

If you are interested in this exciting opportunity, go to the police station 1100 Cultural Park Blvd., and fill out an application. You will be interviewed, fingerprinted and subject to a background check. Applicants must be over 21 years of age, a resident of Lee County and possess a valid Florida driver’s license.

Soon, you could be wearing a police uniform in one of our 14 volunteer police cars.

The deadline for applications is July 31. For more information, call 239-242-3346.
