Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

To support the Vancouver Police Department in providing professional, progressive and innovative police services.
Volunteers are an important asset to the Vancouver Police Department. When citizens who receive police services are helping to design, prioritize, and even deliver services, a closer connection is made between the police department and the public. That is what community policing is all about. By offering volunteer opportunities to the community, we hope to encourage citizen involvement and community empowerment.
The VIPS Program is not intended to replace any functions performed by police personnel. Rather, its role is to augment and complement services provided by the Vancouver Police Department to the community. Volunteers provide VPD with the ability to use existing funds and paid personnel in a more productive manner.
