Kingston police community volunteers seek new members as part of recruitment drive

Release date: September 1, 2022

Kingston Police Community Volunteers (KPCV) are looking for a few good people. We are a group of 70 uniformed citizens who assist the Kingston Police in non-confrontational activities. We act as extra eyes and ears for the Kingston Police. On patrol, we watch for anything out of the ordinary. We would then contact the police dispatchers through our radios, and they would then send officers to deal with the problem.

We are also called upon to search for missing persons or evidence from a crime scene. Kingston Police Community Volunteers are a versatile force of citizens who work hand-in-hand with Kingston Police at over 80 special events and parades each year. We also support child identification and child car seat clinics to help make our community safer.

On Saturday, September 17, 2022 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Kingston Police Community Volunteers will be holding a recruitment session at Kingston Police Headquarters located at 705 Division Street. Displays will be set up to show the many activities in which volunteers participate. Applications can be picked up and/or completed on site, and members will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.

There are no membership fees or compensation for volunteer members of the Kingston Police Community. Applicants must pass a police check and hold a valid Class “G” driver’s license. The only other restriction is that you must be 18 or older. Members must commit to a minimum of eight hours of patrol and attend one meeting per month.

We are looking for community members who are interested in helping volunteer in the Kingston Police Community for a number of years and other than a minimum age requirement of 18 we have no upper age limit as long as you are able to fulfill the functions of the group.
