Legislator Gonsalves: Auxiliary Police Officers Needed

County Legislator Norma Gonsalves (R-East Meadow) is making residents aware that volunteers are needed to serve as members of the Auxiliary Police.

"Our Auxiliary Police Officers do a great job in assisting our Police Department in keeping our County one of the safest places in which to live in the entire nation," said Legislator Gonsalves. "I urge interested residents to contact the Nassau County Auxiliary Police to gain more information about this important public service."

The Auxiliary Police are volunteers dedicated to making their community a safe place to live. Members patrol in marked cars equipped with two-way radios. Auxiliary Police patrol parks, schools and streets in our communities in addition to assisting the Police Department with traffic and crowd control details.

Auxiliary Police Officers must be at least 17 years of age, a Nassau County resident, a US citizen and have a high school diploma or equivalency degree. A training course by the Nassau County Police Department must be completed.

For more information on becoming an Auxiliary Police Officer please contact Police Officer Bell at 573-7521 or send an email to:
