Senior Volunteer Programs

CHP Volunteer PatchThe California Highway Patrol is looking for motivated citizens who want to give something back to their community as Senior Volunteers.​​​​​​​​

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 partic​ipating 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.
