The Stockton Police Department is looking for the best and brightest volunteers – those with the aptitude and sense of commitment, those who want to help our community and make a difference. 


Our goal is to provide the highest level of professional public service to the wide range of culturally diverse groups that make up Stockton – with the help of community members willing to volunteer their time to work the Stockton Police Department.


In an effort to create volunteer opportunities  with the Stockton Police Department, we developed two different programs: Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) and the Sentinels. 


The biggest difference between these two programs is that VIPS must be over 40 years of age, while Sentinels are open to persons over 18+ years of age.
