They make a difference every day and they do it for free. Volunteers play a vital role in building a community.
The Sheriff's Department has more than 900 volunteers. They include citizen volunteers, reserve deputies, chaplains, Search and Rescue (SAR), Explorers, Off-Road Enforcement Team (ORET), Dive Unit, Mounted Unit, and Senior Volunteer Patrol (SVP) members. Together they logged nearly 300,000 hours of volunteer time last year.
We salute their service during National Volunteer Month, as well as National Volunteer Week from April 6 to 12.
