The Peoria County Sheriff's Office will present "Volunteering for Law Enforcement," a free public workshop from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 1 at ICC's North Campus. This workshop is offered through ICC's Adult Community Programs and is intended for anyone who wants to volunteer for law enforcement.
The Peoria County Sheriff's Office has opportunities for volunteers wishing to assist law enforcement with a variety of duties. The auxiliary deputy program offers mobile auxiliary and mounted auxiliary. Throughout the year, auxiliary deputies have opportunities to provide traffic control, serve as parade escorts, help with education events, and participate in public relations activities. Volunteers can help missing persons in their own community by joining Peoria County's Search and Rescue (SAR) Team. Volunteers interested in helping during severe weather can serve as weather spotters. Sheriff's personnel will describe these volunteer programs, including requirements to join, training, assignments, and the application process. While the workshop is free, registration is recommended due to limited seating: visit www.icc.edu/acp (select "Know Your Community" from the catalog) or call 690-6900 to register.
The same registration information may also be used to register for "Personal Safety" workshop on January 19, Peoria County Sheriff's Office Victims Services Coordinator will discuss important information to help keep you and your family safe.
