Our Volunteers

As in past years, we continued to partner with our community volunteers. These individuals give up their personal time to assist us in our day to day operation. Our Crime Watch Volunteers donated a total of 4,446 hours, during 2003, to the community's public safety needs.

The areas worked include radar monitoring, safe boating assistance, beach information site, business night watch, vacation house checks, and whatever else we asked of them. Jan D. Lane is the Civilian Crime Watch Coordinator and Sergeant Paul Luck is the Crime Watch Section Supervisor.

Our Chaplain, Bob Hoem, assists us in many ways. He makes himself available to respond with us when making death notifications, he is present at surf rescue scenes in order to give assistance to victims or families, and he is available to each police employee who simply has a need to talk.

Our Reserve Police Officers assist us by riding with officers in order to be a back up as needed. Only state certified individuals can be Reserve Officers in the State of Washington. Certification requires attending a lengthy academy. This requirement makes it difficult to find individuals who are not only interested in being a Reserve but who also have time to attend schooling solely for the purpose of becoming a volunteer.
