WHY BE A CAPS VOLUNTEER
Volunteer opportunities for members of the CAPS include the following general categories. CAPS members work in areas that interest them or where they feel that their skills can be most valuable. The CAPS patrol covers a variety of duties which include subpoena service, traffic control, handicapped parking enforcement, clerical assistance and others.
It only takes 16 hours a month to help make Oakdale a safer and better place for all of us to live and work. If you care about your community, your neighborhood, and most of all your home and family, you owe it to yourself to join the volunteers of the Citizens Auxilliary Police Services. Like any volunteer support group, we are compromised of individuals, men and women just like you.
To be CAPS member you must be at least 35 years old. You must have a valid California drivers license and a clear criminal record. We encourage and welcome citizens of Oakdale to become CAPS volunteers. No one knows the needs and concerns of your community better than you.
There is a true sense of reward and real pride in becoming a CAPS member, knowing that your 4 hours a week can help catch a graffiti vandal, report a theft in progress, stop a fight before it starts, make our streets and sidewalks safer or free up an officer's time by volunteering to direct traffic or handle other activities.
