HOW TO BECOME PART OF OUR TEAM
Each prospective Volunteer will fill-out an application.
Upon review of the applications, prospective volunteer applicants will be invited to an interview with members of the San Gabriel Police Department.
The oral interview panel will consist of either two or three ranking members of the Department, or its agents. Applicants will be fingerprinted, a Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) check will be conducted and a proof of auto insurance is required. Fingerprints can take upwards of six weeks to clear the Department of Justice (DOJ). A fingerprint return that is not clear, or omission of information from the application, is grounds for termination of the process.
Each applicant will be asked to fill-out a release form giving our background investigator permission to complete a background check. A background investigation will then be initiated. If a release form is not signed, the process will be terminated.
Successful applicants will be notified of the next orientation/training classes.
All Volunteers will be asked to perform a minimum of 18 hours of service each month. This allows adequate time for training and establishes the individual as a productive civilian Volunteer.
A 1-year commitment to the program is requested of each Volunteer.
