The Thousand Oaks Police Department and Ventura County Sheriff’s Office celebrate our law enforcement volunteer programs during National Volunteer Week. The Thousand Oaks Police Station is home to a variety of volunteer programs that dedicate a number of important services to the community.
Volunteer programs such as Volunteers in Policing (VIP), Law Enforcement Explorer Post #2933, Thousand Oaks Disaster Assistance Response Team, Sheriff’s Search and Rescue East County Team, and Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES) provide tremendous support to patrol deputies, detectives and professional staff.
In 2018, over 31,000 hours of service were completed by our volunteers who are assig ned to the Thousand Oaks patrol station. These contributions allow us to better serve our community, especially in emergencies and natural disasters. Providing support for a rescue, directing traffic, providing support at command posts during wildfires and major events, writing police reports, or even spending time working with at-risk youth in the community are just a few of the many crucial assignments volunteers do to serve the community. Thank you to ALL volunteers as we recognize their tremendous work during National Volunteer Week.

Luckily we had few accidents other than the occasional pulled muscle or twisted ankle. 6 hours of hard work later, we packed up both medical stations, and were home by noon.
Thank you CRPD for inviting us and well see you next year!
