Become a Volunteer Auxiliary Police Officer
The NYPD is recruiting new Auxiliary Police to help patrol in Prospect Park.
Auxiliary Police provide extra "eyes and ears" for the Police Department by performing uniformed foot and vehicle patrols. They are trained to observe and report conditions requiring the services of the regular police. Whenever possible, they assist in non-enforcement and non-hazardous duties.
Some of the requirements are:
Once the training is completed there is a 12 hour per month minimum commitment
You must be 17 years or older to enroll in the program
There is an 18 week Academy training program that meets Tuesday nights from 7– 11p.m.
You must be a U.S. Citizen, lawful permanent resident or authorized to work in the U.S.
You must live in New York City or live in one of the six authorized surrounding counties (Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Rockland, Orange and Putnam) and work within New York City
You must possess a valid NYS Driver License or NYS Identification Card
For more information or to apply, visit the NYPD website at http://www.nyc.gov/html/nypd/html/careers/auxiliary_police.shtml. Please note that Prospect Park is in the 78th Precinct. When you fill out the application, chose “Patrol Precinct” and enter “78 – Prospect Park” in the box labeled “Desired Command.”
