The Hinsdale Police Department's volunteer program is intended to continue opening the department’s doors to the community. In the growing challenges of the economic times, the police department is innovatively looking to partner with volunteers in the community to continue providing a high level of service. The Volunteer Program has been created to solicit assistance from the community in fulfilling the department’s commitment to its mission.
There are various means in which Volunteers can help, including: perform records services, lobby greeter, public information aide, investigative services aide, traffic aide, or assist in other duties as needed. Community members that may have specialized skills, such as Information Technology or website design, and are willing to volunteer time are also encouraged to inquire. The police department will provide training and schedule volunteers based upon their availability to help. Volunteers must be at least eighteen (18) years of age, and selection is based upon interview and a thorough background check.
Chief Bradley Bloom stated it is not uncommon for residents, especially retirees, to call and offer free help to the police department. These offers have prompted the department to develop a formal program that gives community members the opportunity to give their time back to the community, while enriching the services that the police department provides "We have a tremendous amount of talent in this community that we could benefit from " Bloom stated.
