Our history

In 1996, Kiwanis Kingston provided financial assistance to form the Kingston Police Community Volunteers.  Initially starting with 25 members, the group now boasts 50 full-time members. 

Over the years, volunteer members have located stolen vehicles and property, conducted searches for missing persons, alerted police to intoxicated drivers, assisted in searching for evidence at crime scenes, and gathered valuable data in areas of common community concern.  In all of these instances, by providing direct support to uniformed officers, volunteers make it possible for officers to concentrate on their front-line tasks. 

The volunteers have also facilitated community outreach, by conducting child identification clinics, child car seat inspections, and station tours and by assisting with major events and parades.
