THE HUNTINGTON BEACH POLICE DEPARTMENT SALUTES THEIR VOLUNTEERS DURING NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK
Retired Senior Volunteer Program (R.S.V.P.)
By Rachel Clarke, Coordinator The Huntington Beach Police Department Retired Senior Volunteer Program has been in existence for over eight years! Our volunteers serve as an extra "eyes and ears" for the department and perform many duties that our officers do not have time to do while patrolling the city. R.S.V.P.'s perform vacation house checks for city residents, take down illegally posted signs, staff police substations, cite illegally parked cars, and work in-station where needed. We are very proud of our volunteers and remain grateful for all their hard work and dedication to the department and the community.
The following people are members of the Huntington Beach R.S.V.P.:
Class 1 (1994) - Ken Katz, Beverly Olander, Judy Orzechowski, Roy Richardson, Seymore Spiegel, Shirley Spiegel, Bob Stephenson and Dee Zimmerman.

Volunteers in Police Services (V.I.P.S.) By Suzie Wajda, Coordinator
The VOLUNTEERS IN POLICE SERVICES program started in June of 1998 with citizens who had attended and graduated from the Citizen’s Police Academy (an eleven-week course, three hours a week, where citizens learn about the police department).
Volunteers In Police Services help in special events such as the Shoreline Marathon, Police Open House, and 4th of July. They also help do office work such as filing pawn slips, stuffing and labeling envelopes, collating and stapling booklets, and calling on missing person cases. They help staff the Oak View and Downtown Substations and distribute Neighborhood Watch newsletters in different areas each month. The program has 48 volunteers, and the police department would like to salute them for all their volunteer efforts.
