101 Precinct Seeks Volunteers
The 101st Precinct needs you! The Far Rockaway police department is seeking volunteer Auxiliary Police to help out.
Auxiliary Police serve as the extra “eyes and ears” for the New York Police Department. Volunteers are trained to observe and report conditions requiring the services of the NYPD as they perform uniformed foot and vehicle patrols.
Auxiliary Police also assist the NYPD at a variety of events, including community festivals, parades, concerts, street fairs and others.
Those interested in becoming an Auxiliary Police officer must be at least 17 years old; be in good health; and have good character.
Volunteers undergo an 18-week training program. Once training is complete, auxiliary police officers must patrol at least 12 hours a month.
