Dear Sunil Sethi,

Now Recruiting for V.I.P.S. Volunteer Program


The Fremont Police Department is currently accepting applications in an effort to recruit approximately 25 new participants for our Volunteers in Police Services (V.I.P.S.) program (formerly CARE and HAPP, now combined).


The Fremont Police V.I.P.S. program helps support the goals and mission of the department by developing and strengthening partnerships and relationships with the community. Similar to a "Citizens on Patrol" program, it began in 2006 with the purpose of being a highly visible support function of the Patrol Division.

Our program, which began with 25 dedicated community members, has grown to more than 60 volunteers.  This current recruitment will allow us to get closer to our goal of having 100 volunteers in patrol! 


Some of the volunteer duties include conducting security checks in neighborhoods and commercial business centers, distributing crime alert bulletins, conducting vacation home security checks, working at special events, enforcing handicapped parking violations, and helping the department with a variety of other tasks.  We are especially interested in volunteers to work patrol as the "eyes and ears" for the department, and for our You Are Not Alone (YANA) Program, a telephone reassurance program for our community's elderly or disabled.


There will be considerable training (60 hours over two months) and a background investigation to ensure we have the best fit to join our Fremont Police Department team.

The recruitment period will run through Monday, January 11, or until we get a sufficient number of responses.  Interviews will take place between January 18th and January 27thth.


For more information visit our website at or go directly to the volunteer page at If you would like to speak with someone about the recruitment, please call Volunteer Administrator CSO Kristen Escamilla at 790-6691.
