Seasonal Police Officers are temporary employees who supplement the year round police force in its mission to the community. This assignment gives college-level criminal justice and other qualified and interested persons the chance to experience first-hand the duties and responsibilities of a sworn police officer. Seasonal Police Officers work from patrol cars, foot posts, or on bicycles. Their duties include the enforcement of state and local criminal laws, traffic laws, and investigating crimes and traffic collisions. Seasonal Police Officers also assist residents and visitors with a wide variety of concerns and problems. Seasonal Police Officers are fully sworn with the same arrest powers as our full-time officers.
