Member responsibilities include patrolling, monitoring handicap parking, keeping an eye out for safety hazards, graffiti and other criminal activity. They also provide traffic and other volunteer support at community events, during major incidents and roadside safety checks.
To volunteer you must be a resident of Wheeling and attend the Wheeling Citizens Police Academy, which is offered once a year. After successful completion of the academy you are eligible to apply to become a Citizens Patrol member. Once accepted, you will then attend an additional training class to learn how to perform your duties and assist the police department as a Citizens Patrol volunteer. Volunteers must also attend a monthly meeting and provide 4 hours of service each month.
