The Southern Pines Police Department recruits volunteers to assist with many different phases of the department’s operations. Volunteer commitments can range from just a few hours to a repeated commitment. Volunteers are always needed to facilitate workshops, set up filing systems, contact victims of inactivated crimes and help with a variety of other tasks.
If you are a retired individual and are interested in volunteering, please contact Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP). RSVP notifies the police department when a volunteer wants to serve. We welcome volunteers, assign meaningful and interesting projects, and work within their schedules.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering.
