Citizen Volunteers and Their Role in Law Enforcement

The men and women of the Pierce County Sheriff's Department believe that we all have a responsibility to contribute to the safety and security of our communities. We believe that 'public safety is not a spectator sport.'


Because of our beliefs, we facilitate citizen commitment and participation by having a very active volunteer program. Recently, we have expanded the number of volunteers in our agency and also expanded the ways in which they can participate in the work of the Sheriff's Department. We are proud of the contributions of volunteers. They contribute their time and talent to improving the quality and quantity of public safety services in Pierce County.

Read about some of the capacities in which citizens 'give back' to the community while serving as Sheriff's Department volunteers by exploring this section of the website.
