Looking for a great way to get involved with your community, look no further. The Volunteers On Patrol (V.O.P.) program was developed and is operated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to encourage residents to become involved with the safety of their community. The program is funded and supported by the City of Agoura Hills. Volunteers On Patrol are community-spirited citizens of the Agoura Hills community who assist the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department performing non-hazardous patrol duties. It’s participants are made up of working people, retirees, and men and women of all races with varied backgrounds. The Volunteers On Patrol have various responsibilities, primarily non-hazardous duties, which have traditionally been performed by patrol deputies. This program; therefore, allows patrol deputies to perform the more hazardous duties that they have been trained to do, thus helping the Department to better achieve its goal of serving the community.

V.O.P. members will be trained on how to help local law enforcement deter crime and educate community members on how to avoid becoming a victim of "crimes of opportunity." Other activities include:

 

- Searching for missing children Volunteers on Patrol Vehicle
- Patrolling the community for criminal activity
- Patrolling the community for safety hazards
- Conducting school safety checks
- Conducting residential vacation checks
- Conducting business checks
- Conducting park safety checks
- Patrolling for graffiti and property damage
- Performing fire watch
- Conducting traffic control
- Performing non-hazardous directed patrol assignments
- Assisting disabled persons
- Fulfilling requests from city and county services
- Assisting L.A. Sheriff's Training Academy - Role-playing, when requested

All volunteers work in teams of two in conspicuously identified vehicles supplied by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
