Senior Volunteer Program

SVP Patch

The California Highway is looking for motivated citizens who want to give something back to their community as Senior Volunteers.

Contact Us to find out how to become a Senior Volunteer.

Volunteers assist the CHP in providing enhanced public service to the community. This is an opportunity for senior citizens to make a definitive contribution towards improving public Safety Service and Security. The Senior Volunteer Program instills among participating volunteers an understanding and appreciation of the justice system, human relations, and ethics in the field of law enforcement.


You must be 55 years or older, can work a minimum of 4 hours per week, pass a background check, have a good driving record, and complete the CHP Senior Volunteer Training Program.

Contact Us For Opportunities:
Please contact your local CHP Area office for opportunities, or email the Volunteer Commander, Captain James Newberry at or call (916) 843-3210.
