Please note at this moment we are not actively pursuing additional new volunteer applicants.  Please make plans to attend the next Roseville Police Department 101 class, tentatively scheduled for Spring 2024.  All volunteers are required to attend the class and it explains a lot of how the department works, how volunteers are utilized, and the process to become a volunteer.

Volunteers are an important and valued resource to the police department.  Volunteering for the police department is a way to make a difference and serve your community.  There are many different volunteer duties, ranging from data entry to being a uniformed Citizen on Patrol.

Roseville Police Volunteer Basic Requirements:

  • at least 18 years of age
  • of good moral character
  • minimum one year commitment of service to the Department
  • serve a minimum of four hours per week or equivalent of 200 hours in a 12 month period. (Work hours are dictated by the chosen volunteer opportunity. We are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week)
  • live or work in Roseville

The volunteer appointment process requires the successful completion of an application, oral interview, and background investigation including LiveScan fingerprinting and CVSA (Computer Voice Stress Analysis).  This process can take up to eight weeks to complete.

After successful completion of the appointment process, volunteers will begin with a general orientation, then will be released to their specific assignment for training as needed.

Volunteers do not engage in contacting, detaining, or arresting suspicious persons or criminals. Volunteers are not sworn police officers and have no powers of arrest beyond those of any private person, and do not carry weapons.

A volunteer position at the Police Department is not a way to gain law enforcement experience, nor is it a way to build a resume for public safety positions - it is simply a way for those who have the time and would like to serve their community.
