The Seal Beach Police Department Volunteers in Policing (V.I.P.) was established over 25 years ago. The program has over 100 volunteers. V.I.P.s work in a variety of capacities and under the guidance of the Emergency Operations Coordinator. V.I.P.s are selected for service through a competitive interview process. They attend in-depth training where they learn about the organization and inner workings of the Police Department. Upon graduation, they are sworn in by the Chief of Police and work with other V.I.P. members.
Initially, V.I.P.s conducted residential vacation checks, conducted fingerprinting, clerical tasks, and participated in various special events such as D.U.I. Checkpoints, but over the years, their duties have expanded. The V.I.P.s are an integral part of the Seal Beach Police Department, and they are essential to our day to day operations.
