For those in the Town of Lexington community who are looking for ways to give back, the Volunteers In Police Services (V.I.P.S.) program provides the opportunity to work with officers at special events and to be an ambassador of the Lexington Police Department.
The V.I.P.S. program was implemented for alumni of the Citizen's Police Academy to volunteer their time and talents to help the Lexington Police Department and the Town of Lexington community as extra manpower during events, provide direct feedback from the community and help identify issues that need to be addressed, and through regular training sessions to have the ability to answer questions and concerns of those they may be around.
Volunteers In Police Services members are valued for the many hours that they donate to assist with special events such as the Lexington's Race Against Hunger, Toys For Tots "Fill the MRAP" campaign, child safety seat events, Veteran's Day and Christmas parades, and the "Adopt-A-Cop" Fall Festival event.
If you have questions or are an alumni of the Citizen's Police Academy who in interested in the V.I.P.S. program, please contact Corporal Cameron Mortenson (email) at 803-359-6260.
