VIPS (Volunteers in Police Services)

The VIPS Program came about after the 911 tragedy.  VIPS is funded by the Department of Justice and administered by the International Association of Chiefs of Police.  The VIPS Program was launched nationally in the Spring of 2002 after the "911 Tragedy".  The purpose of the program is to free law enforcement professionals for frontline duty.   This is done by allowing volunteers to help with some of the administrative duties. The Birmingham Police Department has had VIPS volunteers in many different units when our VIPS Program first started.   Some of BPD's first volunteers worked mainly in the Detective Bureau.  Now, the majority of our volunteers work in the Jail.  These volunteers perform various jobs such as: G.E.D. tutoring, Bible Study Groups, AA Meetings and Computer Lit Groups.  To become a VIPS volunteer, you must be at least 19 years old, pass a background check and commit to at least 4 hours weekly.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Sgt. Debra Fisher at 205-254-5026.
