The Sheriff’s Office is fortunate to have capable citizens willing to offer their time and skills in so many different venues while providing a tremendous service and save countless hours for our uniformed and civilian personnel.
While there are other volunteer opportunities within the Sheriff's Office (Search and Rescue, COPS, Chaplain Corps), this link is specific to our In-House volunteer opportunities.
