With calls for service exceeding 1.2 million from the County’s 1.5 million residents and demands ever-increasing in scope and complexity, our dedicated volunteers remain an integral component of our service model. Whether acting as an extra set of eyes and ears throughout neighborhoods within our Citizen Observer Patrol or working shoulder to shoulder with our full-time deputies in the field as an auxiliary or reserve deputy, our roughly 1,800 volunteers help to bolster our responsiveness by freeing up deputies for their frontline responsibilities.
