Volunteers

Satellite Beach Police Dept. Volunteer Program was started in June of 1993 by two volunteers, Bob Bolin & Joe Alves. Today, the Satellite Beach Police Department has over 50 active volunteers who perform a variety of services for the department and the community.
 
We have a growing community that was built on the concept of volunteerism. Volunteers allow the police department to provide a wider range of services to our residents and provide a solid contribution to the quality of life in Satellite Beach.
