We are currently accepting applications for new volunteers. Citizens who volunteer for this program will undergo a background investigation and be carefully screened as to judgment, maturity, and ability to work within a team concept. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer; download, complete and turn in the application form below to the Moorpark Police Department lobby, located at 610 Spring Road, Moorpark, California 93021. If you have any questions, please contact Jane Mineo at 805-532-2707.

Application Process
Upon receiving an applicant's completed application, there will be an initial background check to insure that there are no criminal disqualifiers in the applicant's history. If the applicant passes the initial background check, they will be scheduled for a formal interview by volunteers as well as the volunteer coordinator. If the applicant is determined to be of good character and an appropriate addition to the program, they will be issued a personal history statement (PHS). Once the applicant completes and returns the PHS, a second, more detailed background investigation will occur. If the applicant passes the second background investigation, they will be authorized to join the program.

No prior law enforcement experience is needed. You will be trained by experienced volunteers and personnel in the department. Training includes report writing, first aid and C.P.R., traffic control, police radio usage, observations and reporting procedures, basic driving skills, and certain administrative duties.

Applicants must be at least 21 years old, possess a valid driver’s license, complete a routine background check and commit to 14 hours of service per month, including a monthly meeting.
