Auxiliary Police Needed

Nassau County Legislator Dave Denenberg is making residents aware that volunteers are needed to serve as members of the Auxiliary Police, specifically in Bellmore and Merrick.

The Auxiliary Police are volunteers dedicated to making their community a safe place to live. Members patrol in marked cars equipped with a two-way radio and emergency equipment. Auxiliary Police Officers patrol seven days per week in our community in addition to assisting the Police Department with crowd control and traffic at community events. Another function of the Auxiliary Police is to assist the Police Department at any Disaster Scene or during any Countywide emergency.

Auxiliary Police Officers must be 18 years of age, a Nassau County resident, a U.S. citizen and have a high school diploma or G.E.D. All applicants must also have a valid New York State drivers license. A 29 session training course held at the Nassau County Police Academy must be completed.

For additional information on becoming an Auxiliary Police Officer please call D.I. LouMaffetone at 516-644-9856.
