Volunteer Flyer

The Danville Police Department and One Community will hold a class Thursday, Nov. 2, from 5-6 p.m. for anyone interested in becoming a volunteer.

One Community Volunteers will help with events around Danville and at the police department. Created due to the need for assistance, the department originally depended on Community Engagement Specialists made up of a team of men and women who were waiting to go the academy. Before the inception of this program, there was little in the way of opportunity for volunteerism with the department.
