Volunteers In Police Service

VIPS LogoVolunteers In Police Service (VIPS) is a partnership between the Buckhannon City Police Department (BPD), the Upshur County Office of Emergency Management (OEM), the Upshur County Citizen Corps Council (CCC), and the Upshur County Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT).

The BPD recognized the opportunity to recruit local citizens to assist the police department during larger scale events.  They approached the above organizations with the idea citizens could serve as an informational extension of the police department.

Members of the VIPS program have been trained in First Aid, CPR, basic search and rescue, basic firefighting, and basic disaster response.  VIPS members will assist the police department with such tasks as search and rescue, disaster response, traffic control, and crowd assistance during community events.

While VIPS members are performing these tasks, the BPD will be free to focus on more department specific tasks, such as investigations and protecting our community.
