[ARCHIVED] NNPD Recognizes Volunteers During National Volunteer Week – April 15-21, 2018

thank you

National Volunteer Week is an annual celebration to promote and show appreciation for volunteerism and volunteering. At the NNPD, we have almost 50 volunteers that give unselfishly of their time, talent and support. During National Volunteer Week and year round, we thank our volunteers for everything they do to help support our mission of keeping our city safe. |

National Volunteer Week in the United States was first established by Presidential Proclamation 4288 and signed by Richard Nixon in 1974. Former President George H.W. Bush showed his support of American volunteering in his 1991 State of the Union address, commending “a volunteer’s generous gesture,” and calling it “an idea that is simply right.” A new National Volunteer Week proclamation is issued by the American president each year.

National Volunteer Week is an opportunity to recognize and thank our volunteers who lend their time, talent, voice, and support to causes they care about in their community and around the world. Their stories serve to inspire others to take action and discover their collective power to unite in making a difference.

At the NNPD, volunteer duties range from working with our Neighborhood Watch Coalition, helping out at the Community Education Outreach Center, performing various duties at the three precincts, and assisting at the Recruitment and Records Divisions. We also have a large group of volunteer chaplains whose services help both our department and our citizens.

Our volunteers play a vital part in the day-to-day operations of the Department and their contributions are greatly appreciated.

If you are interested in volunteering with the NNPD, please call 757-928-4295 or go online at for more information.
