The Royal Oak Police Department is seeking residents to serve on its Auxiliary Police Unit which acts as the eyes and ears of the Police Department and assists at the many special events which are held in the City each year.
The Auxiliary Police Unit is an unarmed, uniformed, volunteer unit, which draws its members from the Royal Oak area. Duties include patrolling neighborhoods and business districts in marked auxiliary units and reporting suspicious circumstances.
Members average about 100 hours a year of auxiliary service. Currently, there are 24 Auxiliary Officers.
Members are required to participate in a 30-hour, in-service training program. They receive training in CPR, first aid, blood borne pathogens, crime prevention, traffic control, as well as other training.
