RSVPs’ duties range from patrolling local neighborhoods, assisting uniformed officers with accident and crime scenes and supporting disaster preparedness and homeland security efforts. As part of the SDPD’s “You Are Not Alone” program, volunteers also visit elderly residents to check on their welfare and conduct vacation house checks for neighbors who are away.
Volunteers in the program are from all walks of life, including military veterans, educators, business leaders, medical professionals and more. A minimum of three days per month is required of each volunteer, and flexible schedules are available. Volunteers must be at least 50 years old with proof of a valid California driver’s license.
For more information or to sign up for the program, contact SDPD’s Northern Division RSVP at (858) 552-1737 or email sdpdNorthern@pd.sandiego.gov.
