Scoping for Volunteers

SCOPE in Deer Park is looking for volunteers 18 years and older to help be the eyes and ears for the Sheriff’s department and local community. SCOPE stands for Sheriff’s Community Oriented Policing Effort. As a volunteer, some of the responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Passing out bicycle helmets 
  • Bicycle safety training
  • Citizens on patrol  (driving by businesses and homes and reporting suspicious activity to Crime Check)
  • Calling in abandoned vehicles 


SCOPE is not the police. If you are a volunteer you will not be given weapons such as guns etc. However, your job is still an important one. You will also be able to fingerprint for the Sheriff’s department and help out with community events. SCOPE is a program to help keep Deer Park safe.

If you are interested in volunteering, you will go through a short 4 hour training. If you wish to be with citizens on patrol, you must have a valid driver’s license, and will need to go through a driver safety training course, so that you are able to use the SCOPE car provided. 

The SCOPE office is located in the lower level of City Hall, 316 E Crawford. Leave a note with your name and number, if volunteers are out of the office. To reach them, call 509-276-7848 and leave your name and phone number.
