Volunteer Patrol with Lyon County Sheriff Department
Please visit the new page to apply.
Volunteer Patrol works directly with the Lyon County Sheriff's Department to serve. The Lyon County Sheriff's Department could not accomplish all of the services they provide if they did not have volunteers willing to take responsibility for part of the workload.
Volunteers must pass background checks and will receive training on their role and responsibilities.
The activities performed by the Volunteer Patrol include safety and well-being checks, home and business checks, observation of of critical infrastructure points and traffic control at events.
Recently Volunteer Patrol stepped up to provide traffic assistance at the Lyon County Fairgrounds during the many COVID related testing and vaccination events.
About RSVP Americorps Seniors of the Flint Hills
221 W Logan Ave., Emporia, KS 66801, US
Flint Hills RSVP is a program of Americorps Seniors that recruits and engages persons 55 and older in volunteer service to meet critical community needs.
Flint Hills Americorps Seniors RSVP offers maximum flexibility and choice to its volunteers as it matches the personal interests and skills of older community members with opportunities to serve. Leading with experience. Your community needs you.
RSVP volunteers choose how and where they want to serve, from a few hours to more than 40 hours a week. Volunteers report better health and higher quality of life by staying engaged in their community and avoiding becoming the isolation and loneliness reported by many seniors.
While many existing opportunities are available presently, we are always identifying community needs and responding with new opportunities.
We consider our volunteers to be a valuable component in the community well being, as well as having an experienced opinion on the direction of our future growth.
