They work side-by-side with Douglas County Sheriff’s deputies to protect our county and keep it a great place to live, play and work.
Community Safety Volunteers or CSVs are civilians who have an interest in law enforcement. They help the sheriff’s office by providing services that don’t require the attention of a sworn officer. That means traffic control, impounding cars, house watches, elementary school checks, VIN verification and neighborhood patrols. CSVs can also work inside the office, making the program great for anyone 20 and older.

- Must be 20 years of age or older.
- Must be a citizen of the United States.
