THANK YOU SHPD VOLUNTEERS!!! We so appreciate you!!!

National Volunteer Week April 15 – 21, 2018 Volunteer in Your Community The Sweet Home Police Department VIPS (Volunteers in Police Service) Program was started in 2010 and got into full swing in 2014. We currently have 18 active and dedicated volunteers at SHPD doing a multitude of tasks that could not otherwise be completed. Our volunteers fill in the voids of essential tasks our community needs that otherwise would not be fulfilled. Volunteering has a positive effect on our community β€” and it’s good for us too. Volunteers save the City money. This obvious advantage has proven to be a valuable resource for our department. The duties our volunteers accomplish would not be possible if it were not for the time they are willing to put in. Radar Trailer Placement, Traffic Monitoring, Assisting Records with Archiving and Filing Documents are just a few of the office tasks they do. Add in the extra duties to our department and we have a well-rounded community base focus for resident safety and education. Our volunteers play a huge role in our Child Abuse Awareness event, our Police Officer memorial event, our annual Jim Bean Memorial Safety Fair, they assist with traffic control for our local parades, they participate in Down Town Trick-or-Treating, help with our STEAKout with SHPD, Tip a Cop and Polar Plunge. One of the most rewarding times of the year for our volunteers is when they assist with our annual Teen Sharing Tree and Shop With a Cop events. These programs would not be possible if not for their much appreciated participation! Volunteers bring needed skills. Many volunteers have specialized knowledge such as computer/audio/video programming, advertising, or organizational skills, but not often enough to hire someone to do the work full-time. Our volunteers who offer their skills on an "as-needed" basis have been the perfect complement to our department. Volunteers can bring a fresh perspective and enthusiasm for the work. This can help revitalize staff, and may help move projects in exciting new directions. Volunteers increase community ownership. The more our community members are involved in our department projects, the easier it will be to work together on larger projects. Also, by using volunteers from throughout the community, we can be sure that your goals are "in tune" with what the community wants, and not just what organization members think they want. There are many volunteer opportunities within our city. The City library can always use additional volunteers to help with story time crafts for toddlers and preschoolers. They could also use help with shelving books on a daily basis and occasionally weeding their flowerbeds. The Friends of the Sweet Home Library need volunteers to help out in the bookstore as well. There are also volunteer opportunities within our city government. Maybe you were destined to be a member of the Library Board, Park & Tree Commission, Public Safety Commission, Planning Commission, Hazard Mitigation Committee, and Budget Committee or maybe even run for City Council!! There are even opportunities for teens at this level with the Youth Advisory Council. Whatever your choice may be – find a place in our community to volunteer and give back to our city.
