Fremont PD welcomes 24 new C.A.R.E. Volunteers!

Last night the Fremont Police Department welcomed 24 new volunteers into the C.A.R.E. program. C.A.R.E. is the Department's citizen's on patrol based program that began in 2007. C.A.R.E. stands for the goals of the program; Connecting, Assisting, Responding and Engaging in meaningful community based programs and services. Currently, with more than 80 volunteers, they assist and enhance the department's community engagement efforts by providing services that couldn't otherwise be facilitated due to our limited resources.

The new recruits were welcomed by Police Chief Craig Steckler and Division Commanders Captain Richard Lucero and Captain Frank Grgurina. The night focused on the organizational structure of the Department, included a building tour and overview of the 60 hours of required training. Over the next nine weeks the volunteers will be trained in First Aid/CPR, how to report suspicious activity, traffic safety, radio and communications, handicapped parking, vacation home security checks, animal services, code enforcement, drivers training, crime prevention, cultural diversity and a number of other topics focused on preparing them for their new role. After graduating from the program at the end of April, they will each be asked to donate 16 hours of service each a month. With a future goal of having approximately 100 volunteers, we anticipate a large recruitment again in about 18 months.

We'd like to thank each of our new volunteers for their dedication and committment to the Fremont Police Department.
