VIPS - Volunteers In Police Service
Last updated on December 30, 2014


The purpose of VIPS is to provide support for various functions within the Davenport Police Department, while increasing the level of service to the community.

The Davenport Police Department is committed to operating under a philosophy of Community Oriented Policing with the goal of identifying and solving problems. In an effort to further Community Policing efforts and work in partnership with community members, the Volunteers In Police Service program was developed and launched in 2005.

VIPS is designed to draw upon the experience of area residents, who as a group, represent a vast community service. Trained volunteers are matched with a job that enables them to contribute most effectively, based on their personal background experience.

The VIPS members will support the Davenport Police Department officers and staff and serve the community by:
Serving as a deterrent by being a presence in the community.
Identifying and reporting City Code Violations.
Attending training programs to learn about law-enforcement.
Providing assistance during activities.
Acting as the eyes and ears of the Davenport Police Department.
