Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) is an important part of the Avondale Police Department and a valuable asset to law enforcement in the community. VIPS help to increase police responsiveness, service delivery, administration and distribute public safety information in Avondale. Volunteers are appointed to volunteer in one of the following areas of the Avondale Police Department: Assistance in Disaster – A.I.D., Citizen Patrol, Communications, Community Services, Crime Analysis, Criminal Investigation Bureau, Southwest Family Advocacy Program, Animal Control, Records or Special Services.

“Since the implementation of the Avondale Police Department VIPS program, volunteers have provided over 10,000 hours of service to the community,” stated Debbie Ray, Volunteer Coordinator for the Avondale Police Department. “This program has demonstrated to the community that qualified and trained volunteers can be a major asset to making the Avondale community a better and safer place to live.”
