Blog: LASD Volunteers On Patrol Graduate

Altadena Volunteers graduate from LASD Volunteers On Patrol Academy

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department completed its Volunteer On Patrol Academy Saturday May 26 2012 with the graduation of Class #21. 

The 50 volunteers completed over 36 hours of training which was held at Martin Luther King Medical Center and consisted of several different aspects of what the Volunteers On Patrol need to know including radio codes and procedures, personal safety, patrol tactics and driver training.

The class included 8 volunteers that will be volunteering at the Altadena Station. 

Pictured left to right are Lt. Mike White Altadena Station, Deb Halberstadt, Jackie Sharpe, Andy Morrison, Matthew Shropshire, Deputy Ronnie Manier Community Relations Altadena Station, Sahara Torres, Candy Jesus, Guadalupe Venegas, Helen Nazaryan.

Volunteers On Patrol will be patrolling Altadena in a marked sheriffs car and will assist deputies in a variety of tasks, perform vacation checks on residences and patrol schools and parks. 

If you see them driving around Altadena please wave and say hi to show your appreciation for what they do.  After all, they aren’t paid and they do this as a way of giving back to the community.

Thank you Bill Westphal for "showing up" and volunteering to make this photo for us. It is an honor, like Matt said, to be a VOP and work with the team for the ALD LASD.
