General Volunteer Information
The Round Rock Police Department offers a wide variety of volunteer opportunities for dedicated citizens who log more than 12,000 hours of service per year. Our volunteers are an essential component to departmental success, and they provide staffing for community events, support administrative tasks within the police department, and assist with the implementation of community services.
The first step in becoming a volunteer is creating a volunteer profile on RRPD’s My Volunteer Page, which you can access by clicking here! We host New Volunteer Orientation the second Thursday of every month, and our General Volunteer Meetings occur one weeknight, every other month.
Victim Advocacy Volunteers
Victim Services Volunteers share their time, knowledge, and insights to assist those touched by tragedy. These caring citizens of our community are trained to assist and lessen the staff’s after-hours call-out load. The Victim Services Volunteers serve weekday evenings and on weekends. They are ready to respond, as needed, to various calls.
Volunteers must attend and successfully complete classroom instruction through the Victim’s Services Training Academy. Training Academy is held periodically on an as-needed basis. Training includes topics pertaining to crimes against persons such as:
- Sexual assault
- Family violence
- Victim issues

Top applicants are invited to attend the Training Academy.
