Retired Seniors: SDPD’s Northern Division is Looking for You!

By Dexter La Pierre

The San Diego Police Department’s Retired Senior Volunteer Patrol (RSVP), Northern Division, is seeking additional volunteers to serve the communities of Clairemont, Bay Park, UTC, La Jolla, Pacific and Mission Beaches.

RSVP duties include patrolling our local neighborhoods while serving as additional eyes and ears for the police department.  We assist uniformed officers by directing traffic at accidents and crime scenes, we support disaster preparedness and homeland security efforts.  In addition, we look for stolen vehicles using our license plate readers, and ticket those vehicles parked in handicap spaces not displaying the handicap plates or placards.  RSVP volunteers visit elderly residents to check on their welfare and safety and we check homes for residents on vacation.

Volunteers are from all walks of life: military veterans, educators, business leaders, and professionals including those with a background in medicine.  Volunteers must be at least 50 years of age and possess a valid California driver’s license.  We offer flexible schedules; a minimum of three days per month service is required.  Here is your opportunity to be part of a talented team of San Diegans serving our community!

Don’t wait, our next academy begins June 2, 2014.  Contact SDPD’s Northern Division RSVP at 858-552-1737 or E-mail to: sdpdNorthern@pd.sandiego.gov.
