Rocklin Police and Fire Department Recruiting Volunteers
Are you looking for a rewarding way to spend a few hours a week making a difference in your community? If so, the City of Rocklin would like to invite you to join the Rocklin Police and Fire Volunteer Program.
Volunteers play a key role in helping the police and fire department provide a high level of service to the community and undertake projects that were previously not feasible because of limited resources.
The Police Department has openings in Patrol, Records and Front Counter clerical support, Child Safety Education (delivering presentations in the elementary schools), and Code Enforcement. All of these functions require availability Monday through Friday during daytime hours. Rocklin Police Volunteers serve as extra "eyes, ears, and helping hands" but do not engage in contacting, detaining, or arresting suspicious persons or criminals. Volunteers are not sworn officers and have no powers of arrest beyond those of any private person.
The Fire Department has openings in Fire Administration (office and front counter clerical support; daytime Monday - Friday), Fire Prevention (Child Safety Seat Installation, Hands-Only CPR Instruction), and Fire Support. Fire Support Volunteers do not fight fires, but do assist firefighters at fire scenes by filling air tanks and getting units back in service (they can be called into service 24 hours a day).
In order to become a Rocklin Police and Fire Volunteer you must be at least 18 years of age, be of good moral character, and have no felony or recent misdemeanor convictions. Volunteers must also be able to work with minimal supervision, work well with others, volunteer at least 16 hours a month, and commit to a minimum of 3 years of service. There is no requirement to live in Rocklin.
The hiring process requires a volunteer application, oral interview, warrant check, background investigation, Life-Scan fingerprint check, and completion of the Volunteer Academy. The Volunteer Academy is mandatory for all new police and fire volunteers. The next Volunteer Academy will start on Tuesday, August 27, 2013 at 6:30 p.m., and will meet on 10 consecutive Tuesday evenings and two Saturdays during the day.
All interested persons are invited to attend an orientation that further explains the program and the commitment it demands. At the conclusion of the orientation, application packets will be distributed to all interested persons.
The orientation will be:
Date: Tuesday, March 19, 2013
Time: 7:00 p.m.
Location: Rocklin Police Department
Emergency Operations Center
4080 Rocklin Road
Rocklin, CA 95677
