Citizen Volunteer Program

The Scotland County Sheriff’s Office Volunteer Program is comprised of citizens with a true desire to volunteer their services while learning more about the internal workings of the law enforcement community.

A citizen volunteer in law is a member of the community who provides support services to an agency without monetary benefit. Services typically include community outreach, telephone work, research, and other administrative tasks.

The service that will be provided by these volunteers will be a financial benefit to the citizens of Scotland County. The use of citizen volunteers will help to assists the Sheriff’s Office in the meeting of demands and, as the demand continues to grow, so will the need for active citizen participation.
