Fall River -

The Police Department is accepting applications for volunteer auxiliary police officers.
The Auxiliary Police Unit was established in 1950 and today is one of the largest and most active in the commonwealth.
The unit comprises 45 volunteers who assist the department with assignments from Chief John M. Souza and are on duty every week throughout the year.
Duties include traffic control and direction at parades and processions, crime prevention and security details at community and charitable events. They also assist the city's emergency management director during emergencies.
In order to be eligible, applicants must be United States citizens ages 18 to 65; residents of Fall River, Freetown, Somerset, Swansea and Westport only; have no criminal record; have a current Massachusetts driver's license; be in excellent health and be physically fit; be of good moral character; be a high school graduate or have a general education equivalency certificate; and successfully complete a thorough background investigation and meet with an interview board. Weekend availability is imperative as well as a minimum of four volunteer hours per week, including mandatory monthly meetings and training classes.
Candidates must successfully complete the auxiliary police officer basic training program for recruits. Instruction will consist of classroom learning, field and on-job training. Upon appointment, equipment and uniforms are issued by the department.
Training will include automated external defibrillator, baton, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, police procedures and more.
Anyone interested in volunteering can call Lt. Charles J. Cullen, APU commander, at 508-676-8511, Ext. 173. Applications will be accepted until Jan. 31.
