The Frederick County Sheriff’s Office is inviting citizens to attend a Community Assistance Patrol (CAP) Orientation Thursday, Sept. 26, 2013, at 6:30 p.m. The event will be held at the Frederick County Law Enforcement Center, located at 110 Airport Dr E, Frederick. The purpose of the orientation will be to provide Frederick County citizens an opportunity to learn more about the CAP Volunteer program.
The goal of the Sheriff's Office CAP Volunteer Program is to enlist volunteers who will assist the agency by providing non-law enforcement services to the community thus allowing certified deputies more time to handle and respond to calls that require law enforcement attention. Historically, the office’s volunteer program has been integral in improving the efficiency and productivity of the office.
The orientation will be held in the first floor conference room and is open to the public. Persons interested in becoming members of the CAP Volunteer Program must be 21 years of age, a Frederick County, Maryland resident, a U.S. Citizen, possess the ability to perform duties required, possess a valid Maryland Driver's License, and have a High School Diploma or G.E.D. For more information contact the Community Services Section at 301-600-2167.
