If you have ever had an interest in volunteering at the Police Department, thought about doing something that really matters, wanted to take the first step at becoming an officer, or just wanted to give something back to your community, now is the time to become an El Monte Police Department Volunteer!


We are planning many new and exciting changes in our V.C.A.P. Program and are looking to greatly increase our staff of volunteers. The only requirements are:

  • High School Diploma or Equivalent
  • Minimum 19 Years of Age

Regardless of your age, physical limitations, unusual working hours, etc., I guarantee there will be something fun and interesting for you to do, something you choose to do because it interests you!
