MPD Looking for Volunteers!

Tuesday, February 7, 2017


The DC Metropolitan Police Department is currently accepting applications to serve as volunteer Reserve Police Officers, Auxiliary Police Officers, or Citizen Volunteers! Classes begin in the Summer of 2017.

Reserve Officers are dedicated, community-oriented, armed police officers who serve alongside MPD career officers in our mission to serve and protect the citizens and visitors of Washington, DC. Auxiliary Officers are sworn, unarmed police officers who serve alongside MPD career and reserve officers in a variety of capacities, such as working specific details including traffic and special events, helping with station responsibilities, cell block work, and community engagement initiatives. Citizen volunteers assist the department in its day-to-day operations and can perform a variety of tasks, such as administrative work, station work, and in various customer service roles.

We are specifically interested in individuals who have a desire and capacity to work with youth for various community engagement projects and events.

If you would like to participate in any of these three programs, please email [email protected] to register to attend one of the following orientation sessions:

  • February 21st – 7-9pm at 441 4th Street, Northwest
