Q1:  What is the minimum age requirement to be a VRU member?

Answer: VRU members must be at least 18 years old before they can apply. The Sheriff's Cadet group recruits individuals that are between the ages of 15 to 20. So, if you or someone you know is eager to volunteer with the Sheriff's Office and are not of the minimum age to be in the VRU, please contact us and we can get you in touch with a Cadet Advisor.

Q2:  Can you tell me what kind of activities VRU members perform?

Answer: There are many ways to volunteer with VRU. Our volunteers perform administrative functions in the office, some prefer community event details, others enjoy doing radar trailer placement, parades, fingerprinting, or crime scene security type details. We're sure that there is a volunteer opportunity for you to enjoy as a VRU member.

Q3:   What are the requirements to be a VRU volunteer?

Answer: A minimum of 38 hours per year of participation is required to maintain "good standing" status with us. We also require that you attend 7 monthly meetings per year and maintain required trainings.

If you have any questions about our volunteer group, please contact us. We would be happy to speak to you!
