The Hemet Police Department Volunteer Program was created in 1993 as a way for citizens to supplement the Hemet Police Department’s sworn officers. The intention of the program is for volunteers to perform certain tasks that otherwise would be performed by sworn police officers and thereby allowing the police officer to spend more time on the streets. The volunteers operate a wide variety of services for the police department such as Alzheimer Registration, Crime Scene Call Outs, Livescan Fingerprinting, Parking Enforcement, Traffic Control, Vacation Property Checks and Special Events (such as Parades, Ramona Outdoor Play).
Hemet Police Volunteers sign up to work in the fields that interest them most and they are most comfortable in. They bring years of experience to our Department and are not forced into working in an area they are not suited for or do not enjoy.
The volunteer program is coordinated by emailing Robin Rickert, a Hemet PD Volunteer herself. Robin is supervised by Sergeant Jaime Gonzalez. There are currently over 70 active volunteers in the Hemet Police Department Volunteer program. Individuals interested in becoming a Hemet Police Volunteer can obtain an application (DOC) online.
