Volunteers in Police Services (VIPS)

Volunteers are not intended to replace the services provided by the full-time professional members of the Sheriff’s Office. Instead, the critical support services they provide under the direction of the Sheriff’s designated liaisons and Command Staff, allow them to help where and when needed. As a volunteer, you become an invaluable member of the Sheriff’s Team.

Eaton County Sheriff’s Office has a variety of volunteer services for you to join. Some areas to volunteer:

  • ATV Division
  • Handicap Parking Enforcement
  • Mounted Division
  • Victim Advocates
