The Long Beach Police Department will be hosting two informational open houses for anyone interested in becoming a Volunteer Senior Police Partner (SPP).
Applicants must be at least 50 years of age, of good moral character, possess a valid California driver's license and vehicle insurance, have basic computer and smart phone skills, be able to volunteer at least 20 hours per month, and consent to a comprehensive background investigation.
Made up of a motivated team of citizens, SPP’s are dedicated to improving their community. “It makes me feel good when I serve others, especially seniors in my community” said SPP Linda Pernod. “I also truly love being part of the LBPD family.”
A SPP can expect to provide peer support and resource referrals, education and awareness programs, community group presentations, graffiti reporting and vacation checks, among other services.
The events will be held as follows:
Saturday, July 6, 2019
Saturday, July 13, 2019
9:00 – 11:00 a.m.
Long Beach Police Department East Division
