The Fall River Police Department is continuing its recruitment drive for auxiliary officers. Deputy Police Chief Charles Cullen said applications for volunteers will be accepted through March 1. Training classes are set to begin March 10. Those interested must be U.S. citizens ages 18 to 65. They must be residents of Fall River, Freetown, Somerset, Swansea or Westport and must have no felony criminal record. A high school degree or a GED is required. All volunteers must pass a background investigation and questions from an interview board. Volunteers will be trained in first aid, CPR, use of a defibrillator and on the use of a baton. They will also go through classes on department rules and regulations, police procedures, radio communication, police vehicle operation and basic criminal law. All of those accepted will be expected to attend monthly meetings and training classes and volunteer four hours per week. Availability on the weekend is necessary, Cullen said. Anyone interested in signing on as a volunteer should call Cullen at 508-676-8511, Ext. 233.
