About the Volunteers Services Unit

The Rockford Department of Public Safety is proud of its Volunteer Services Unit (VSU). Community members participate in this nationally recognized Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) program. Our VSU currently has 17 dedicated members.

Volunteers help conduct vacation home checks and checks on elderly homebound residents. They direct traffic at events and enforce parking.

They staff the downtown Welcome Center. They also donate their time assisting at community events, including Youth Night and National Night Out.
