Lebanon Police Department Starts a Volunteers in Police Service Program


The Lebanon Police Department announces a new program called Volunteers in Police Service Program (VIPS). The VIPS Program originated from the USA Freedom Corps (USAFC) that was established by former US President George W. Bush following the events of September 11, 2001. Since its development, VIPS is managed by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP). 

Thousands of law enforcement agencies across the country utilize this volunteer program not only to offer additional support to their employees, but to also provide the opportunity for citizens who wish to volunteer their time and skills to help their community.

Volunteers can be an important part of any organization and are proven to be valuable assets to law enforcement agencies. Volunteers help increase police responsiveness, service delivery, and information input, and provide new program opportunities. The volunteers within this program will help sworn and non-sworn staff of the Lebanon Police Department with a variety of tasks, such as community services activities, clerical duties, homeless outreach and response, traffic control, animal control, vacant house checks, fingerprints, and other duties as assigned.

Volunteers will be required to complete the VIPS application form, pass a criminal background check, be at least 21 years of age, and complete required training. To apply, you can visit our website or contact Lieutenant Michael Wright at or at 603-448-1212.

For further information about the VIPS Program, you can visit the IACP website.
