Minnesota, MN — The Eden Prairie Police Department recently open recruitment for volunteers. Approximately 20 adults who want to contribute to the Reserve Unit and assist sworn officers are needed. Reserve officers should work at least 1 weekday night each month, participate in monthly training meetings, and answer emergency alerts as needed. They serve as a welcoming figure in the neighborhood by performing community service tasks and non-criminal police functions, such as answering community service calls, including auto lockouts, animal control, traffic directing, and minor medical issues.

The Reserve Unit has donated an average of 4,000 community service hours each year during the last 11 years. Despite the fact that overall calls for assistance were decreased during the pandemic in 2020, the Reserve Unit consistently gave 2,665 volunteer hours more than one full-time employee. No prior experience required, but reserve officers must complete special training and gain CPR/First Aid certificate. Reserve officers are required to be Eden Prairie residents, or at least live within 10 miles of the City.

Applicants are expected to be at least 18 years old this year, already graduated from high school with a Minnesota driver's license and a good driving record. They are required to be able to legally work in the United States and pass the City's evaluation of a criminal history check with good physical condition. During the volunteering period, the Eden Prairie Police Department will also provide a uniform to wear. This is a good opportunity for you to gain experience and contribute to make the city an even better place to live.
