Volunteers In Police Service

The Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) program is modeled after the national VIPS program, and our mission is to support and enhance the police department by performing duties that enable the officers and staff to fully concentrate on public service. Our volunteers develop valuable relationships with other volunteers, police officers, police staff members, and the San Marcos community.
