Free Training Offered for Those Interested in Becoming Police Volunteers


The City of Flint will conduct a series of six training sessions for residents interested in becoming police volunteers. Police volunteers assist the Flint Police Department with crowd and traffic control for major events, administrative duties, dignitary details and community relations functions. Volunteers also play a vital role in supplementing police resources through such activities as neighborhood block clubs, participating in crime watch and crime prevention activities, and staffing mini-stations in each of the city’s nine wards.

Residents must attend all training sessions and successfully pass a background check before becoming an official Blue Badge Police Volunteer. The training sessions will cover a range of topics and will be held at the Flint Police Academy from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. on the following days:

  • March 5, 2012 – Policy Procedures, City Ordinances and Legal Updates
  • March 6, 2012 – Traffic and Crowd Control
  • March 12, 2012 – Personal Safety
  • March 13, 2012 – De-escalating Conflict
  • March 19, 2012 – Radio Communications
  • March 20, 2012 – Report Writing

Space is limited. All participants must confirm their attendance no later then 4 p.m. on March 2nd by contacting Officer Tanya Meeks at or (810) 237-6926.
