Members of the Euless Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association provide an invaluable service to the Police Officers and the City of Euless by doing some of the jobs that normally would have to be handled by the officers. This allows the officers to stay on the streets and protect Euless and its citizens.
What do Volunteers do?
Volunteer opportunities abound! Here are just a few of the services that the Euless Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association provides. This civic group is always looking for new ways to serve the Euless Police Department and its community.
The biggest fundraising event for the Euless Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association is its annual barbecue dinner and auction. Volunteers plan, collect donations and host this event. Proceeds benefit the Euless Police Department.
Other fundraisers include:
When the City of Euless hosts events, such as Arbor Daze or Crud Day, Alumni Association members volunteer their time to be at the information table or to perform other supportive roles.
Volunteers sit in the Sky Tower and watch over the citizens of Euless and their property. The tower is equipped with a zoom camera and recorder, which is operational within the tower or remotely from the police station.
Property Room Assistance
The Property Room holds uniforms, office supplies and many other vital articles of the Police Department. Volunteers deliver/pick up items for the Police Officers and perform other miscellaneous tasks.
Citizens on Patrol
Volunteers assist the Police Department by going on patrol. Some of the tasks they may perform include blocking intersections for accidents, helping locate missing children, enforcing handicap parking, reporting junk vehicles, conducting vacation watches and many other functions.
Volunteers transport vehicles, cameras, radar and other equipment to service centers when they need maintenance.
Warrant Round Up
Volunteers call people who have warrants for their arrest from The City of Euless. This frees up officers and courts staff.
Each year the Police Department hosts two, week-long summer camp sessions for children ages 10 to 12. The kids go ice skating, bowling, swimming and play team-building games. The Euless Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association members provide financial support for the free camp or serve as staff members.
Volunteers answer the phone on an “as need” basis and help the records clerks file non-confidential public records.
Criminal Investigation Division Assistance
Volunteers help the Criminal Investigation Division (CID) by sorting pawn tickets, answering the phone and giving messages to the appropriate people.
Each week alumni members water the plants throughout the Police Department and the Courts Facility.
