Sequim Police Department seeking volunteers for VIPS program

The Sequim Police Department is seeking applicants for its Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) program. These citizen volunteers perform important duties in support of the department, city officials say, including: vacation house checks, child car seats checks, issuing handicap parking violation citations, traffic control and transporting vehicles.

During community special events and festivals, VIPS act as additional eyes and ears for the police, as well as ambassadors for the City of Sequim. They provide invaluable help in the front office answering phones, filing, issuing licenses, fingerprinting and working on special projects.

Minimum qualifications for acceptance into the VIPS program include being 21 years of age or older, a Sequim/Clallam County resident, able to pass a background check and a commitment to volunteering 8.5 hours a month.

The application may be picked up at the Sequim Police Department, 152 W. Cedar St., or online www.sequimwa.gov/index.aspx?NID=302.

For more about the VIPS program, contact the Sequim Police Business Office at 360-683-7227, 7:30 am.m-4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
