CCPD accepting applications for next academy class
The Cape Coral Police Volunteer Unit will hold an academy class the week of Feb. 8 at Police Headquarters. Upon successful completion of the academy classes, attendees must volunteer at least 16 hours per month.
The 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 & Boom, the Coconut Festival, etc. and other events as assigned. They make deliveries to the court system in Cape Coral and Fort Myers.
