The Cass County Sheriff's Volunteer Program is a voluntary service group within the Cass County Sheriff's Office. Its purpose is to serve the department by performing duties and providing services that will supplement and enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of the department. The Volunteer Program will concentrate on activities that will free up department personnel for more important functions as well as do work that cannot be accomplished due to limitations of time and other resources.

 

Historically, volunteer groups and organizations have been invaluable in providing vital service to this country, our state, and our community. The establishment of the Cass County Sheriff's Volunteer Program greatly increases the effectiveness of the Cass County Sheriff's Office. The Cass County Sheriff's Volunteer Program is another opportunity to enhance the community policing philosophy of the Cass County Sheriff's Office by partnering with civilians to provide a high quality of service to the citizens of Cass County .

 

The Volunteer Program provides citizens with an opportunity to participate in the activities of the Cass County Sheriff's Office and to gain a better understanding of the nature and challenges of law enforcement work as well as make a valuable contribution to the well being of our community.

Volunteers are expected to have completed the Cass County Citizens Academy.
