HPD Volunteers - Action That Counts
Volunteers bring unique skills and experience that strengthen our community. The HPD volunteer program is designed to match each volunteer with a meaningful role that provides benefits to both the individual and the City. We thank you in advance for your interest and time spent volunteering with our Department.
Special Project Volunteers:
- Chaplain Volunteers assist on-scene with both Hillsboro Fire & Rescue and Hillsboro Police. They play an important role in helping our community members through difficult times, regardless of an individual’s personal faith background or belief system.
- Bike Safety Advocates will have the opportunity to share their enthusiasm for bikes and safe bicycling practices with the Hillsboro community, especially youth during bike safety clinics. There you will help promote safety by ensuring helmets are properly fitted.
- Volunteer Tailors will hem approximately and at minimum seven to ten pairs of pants per month as well as attach patches and stripes to uniforms (as needed) using your personal sewing machine.
- Photographers help capture HPD community events. Photographs are used in a variety of marketing and outreach materials designed to highlight HPD programs and services.
- Interns get a behind the scenes look at the roles and responsibilities within the police department. While assigned to various units within the department interns are able to fulfill their education requirements while contributing to the mission of the police department.
- Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age.
- Volunteers must be able to successfully complete a background check, which includes both reference checks and a criminal history check.
- Volunteers must support the Hillsboro Police Department and comply with confidentiality requirements and department policies and procedures.
