Police Volunteer Application

The Cape Coral Police Department is proud to have many residents of our city serving as civilian, unsalaried volunteers to assist in day-to-day duties and to improve police-related services to the community.  Members of the Police Volunteer Unit are not commissioned with sworn officer status and do not perform those duties which require a sworn-officer, but perform a vital role in support of sworn police personnel.

The Patrol Division patrols the streets of Cape Coral, assisting with the enforcement of non-moving violations such as handicap parking, fire lane, median parking, parking on a sidewalk, parking in front of a fire hydrant, etc.  Patrol Division volunteers do vacation house checks, direct traffic at crashes, and other duties to help the police department keep this community safe. They also work special events such as Red, White & Boom, the Coconut Festival, and other events as assigned. Finally, Patrol Division volunteers make deliveries to the court system in Cape Coral and Ft. Myers.

Specifically, our Marine Unit Volunteers patrol the waterways. They locate, report, and/or remove obstructions; educate citizens on water safety, boating etiquette, and applicable laws. They also assist  Marine Officers as needed; and participate in citywide special events.
