Seniors sought for La Jolla volunteer patrols

The San Diego Police Department’s Retired Senior Volunteer Patrol (RSVP), Northern Division, is seeking volunteers to serve the La Jolla community.

RSVPs help address citizen concerns and patrol local neighborhoods as additional eyes and ears for the police. The senior volunteers assist uniformed officers with accident and crime scenes, and support disaster preparedness and homeland security efforts. In addition, RSVPs visit elderly residents to check on their welfare and safety as part of the YANA (You Are Not Alone) program, and conduct vacation house checks.

Current RSVP volunteers are from all walks of life, and include military veterans, educators, business leaders and various professionals. Flexible schedules are available, though a minimum of three days per month is required of each volunteer (who must be at least 50 years of age and possess a valid California driver’s license).

For more information, contact SDPD’s Northern Division RSVP at (858) 552-1737 or e-mail sdpdnorthern@pd.sandiego.gov
