The Visalia office of the California Highway Patrol is looking for a few good men and woman willing to give something back to their community.
The CHP’s Senior Volunteer Program has begun recruiting people 55 and older who will contribute a minimum of four hours a week in the Visalia area office.
Capt. Steve Sullivan, commander of the Visalia CHP area, said he is seeking to add new energetic volunteers to the current group.
“I’m looking for (high) quality, motivated individuals with the spirit of volunteerism…who want to effect positive change in the community,” Sullivan said.
The volunteers perform administrative functions, such as filing and answering phones, and also work at community events, direct traffic and drive CHP cars to set up radar trailers. They also occasionally ride along with officers, serving as an extra set of eyes in search of speeders and cell phone violators.
