ACT Policing is looking for people keen to join its Volunteers in Policing program. Sadly you don’t get given a badge and told to go fight crime, I already checked.
Still, you do get to call yourself a VIP so that’s cool.
I actually had no idea that the Police used volunteers to fill certain roles.
Volunteers perform a vital role in support of frontline police; including role-playing for police recruits, front office duties at police stations, consensual fingerprinting and a wide variety of diverse jobs that assist ACT Policing in serving our community.

Program Manager Sergeant Sharan Slater said the VIP Program was a great opportunity to have fun and help out in the community.
“The volunteer program is an ideal way to make a real contribution to ACT Policing, meet some new friends and be part of the inner workings of our local police service,” Sergeant Slater said.
“Our volunteers are part of our AFP family and are vital to our success.”
Doesn’t sound half bad. I run a wicked Dungeons and Dragons campaign, so “role-playing for police recruits” would be right up my alley.
