VIPS logo

Several ways to contribute your time


Goodyear Police Department's Volunteer Program began in 2004. As the program has grown, our Volunteer responsibilities have expanded to include a broad range of activities. The following opportunities are available for Volunteers:


Our Administrative staff conducts various tasks of data entry and various methods of providing customer service to both the public and internal employees. Some responsibilities include data entry of traffic citations, composing Excel spreadsheets, filing, assisting with public and/or City of Goodyear events and several other creative projects which could include certificate design, pamphlets, etc.

Citizen Patrol

Our Patrol Volunteers saturate our community in specially marked "Volunteer" vehicles, extending the eyes and ears of the patrolling Police Officers.  The uniformed Patrol Volunteers offer a variety of services to include Vacation Watch, Retail Patrol, Neighborhood saturation, safety visits at the schools, write parking violations, assist on accident scenes, complete tow affidavits and several other tasks to assist with non-arrest situations within our City.

Event Support

VIPS provide traffic and crowd control presence at City and Department events.

Activities include events at Goodyear Ballpark, G.A.I.N., Shop-with-a-Cop, parades, marathons and several more activities within our City.


A VIPS volunteer fingerprints a resident

The City of Goodyear offers service for citizens needing fingerprint cards for employment and certifications. 

Fingerprint service is available on Mondays from 9 AM to 3 PM at the Goodyear Public Safety Administration Office at 175 N. 145th Ave, Bldg E.

Vacation Watch

The City of Goodyear provides a vacation watch service to its residents. This assures volunteers and officers on patrol are aware of temporarily vacant properties. A vacation watch consists of regularly checking on a citizen's property for damage, entry and/or anything out of the ordinary while a resident is away.  Vacation Watch Request Form 

Volunteer prepares a car window for VIN etching

VIN Etching

Volunteers periodically work with officers to provide VIN etching for citizens at no charge. This program makes your vehicle less attractive to thieves by lightly etching your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) on each window surface on a vehicle.
