The Utah County Sheriff’s Office is a proud sponsor of the Volunteers in Police Service, a nationally recognized program which is committed to developing a spirit of cooperation and partnership with the community. In conjunction with the Utah County Sheriff’s Jeep Patrol we recruit, train, and retain talented volunteers who will be encouraged to participate in meaningful community safety, security, and service programs, in addition to emergency response situations.
These programs help make your neighborhood a safer environment. Benefits of these sorts of programs include increased emergency preparedness, reduced crime, getting to know your neighbors and community issues, getting to work with law enforcement to prevent crime, peace of mind, and a quicker response time in emergencies. To learn more about becoming involved in your Neighborhood Watch or Community Safety Team, download the starter guide.
Volunteers are trained to help communities mitigate disasters during the first 72 hours following a disaster when damaged roads, disrupted communications, high telephone call volume, etc., may restrict access by professional emergency response teams. The purpose of CERT training is to provide citizens with the basic skills that they will need to handle virtually all of their own needs and then to respond to their community’s needs in the aftermath of a disaster. More information on CERT training and certification can be found at Emergency Management.
RAD is a self-defense and empowerment program for women of all ages beginning at 13 years old. We teach risk awareness, risk reduction and easy to remember self-defense techniques. Because of the mature nature of the subjects covered, we encourage teenagers to be accompanied by a trusted adult female. We offer this program 4 times per year (February, May, August, and November). The program is 15 hours long.
