Media Release - National Volunteer Week

Nature of Incident: National Volunteer Week Recognition

Location: Thousand Oaks, CA

Date & Time: April 10, 2019 @ 6:00 p.m.

Unit(s) Responsible: Thousand Oaks Police Department/Ventura County Sheriff’s Office

Narrative:

The Thousand Oaks Police Department and Ventura County Sheriff’s Office celebrate our law

enforcement volunteer programs during National Volunteer Week. The Thousand Oaks Police

Station is home to a variety of volunteer programs that dedicate a number of important services

to the community.

Volunteer programs such as Volunteers in Policing (VIP), Law Enforcement Explorer Post #2933,

Thousand Oaks Disaster Assistance Response Team, Sheriff’s Search and Rescue East County

Team, and Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES) provide tremendous support to patrol

deputies, detectives and professional staff.

In 2018, over 31,000 hours of service were completed by our volunteers who are assigned to the

Thousand Oaks patrol station. These contributions allow us to better serve our community,

especially in emergencies and natural disasters. Providing support for a rescue, directing traffic,

providing support at command posts during wildfires and major events, writing police reports, or

even spending time working with at-risk youth in the community are just a few of the many crucial

assignments volunteers do to serve the community. Thank you to ALL volunteers as we

recognize their tremendous work during National Volunteer Week.
