Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office Citizen Volunteers achieved a historic high level of support in the first nine months of 2013. As of September 30, 2013 volunteers had contributed nearly 13,600 hours at a value to taxpayers of nearly $230,700 in 13 functions in the Sheriff’s Office. The milestone establish is the eclipsing of the total 2012 year’s volunteer efforts by almost 300 hours and just over $25,800.00, with three months to go in the year In addition the many volunteers devoted to the Animal Protective Services unit added another over 6,300 hours’ worth over $102,600. This brings the total volunteer contribution to the Sheriff’s Office to nearly 20,000 hours, a contribution valued at over $333,300 if the functions had been performed by paid staff. This offsets of over 15 man-years of additional operational support in lieu of an increase in paid positions. The estimated cost of supporting the Volunteer Services program through these nine months is $61,000; covering the cost of uniforms, equipment, and two recently acquired replacement Citizen Patrol cars.
Outside of the Animal Protective Services Unit, the largest volunteer contribution is in the Administrative support area. Working in a variety of tasks at the Bolivia headquarters and the two (2) sub-stations volunteers accomplished 3,559 hours
This is closely followed by our highly visible Volunteer Observers Impacting Community Efforts (VOICE) Citizens Patrol program. Over 50 unarmed citizen volunteers perform community observation patrols on a daily basis. In addition they augment deputies by responding to traffic accidents for traffic control; conducting traffic control functions for special events; assisting with escort assignments; assisting stranded motorist; and conducting special patrol checks of businesses, parks, and schools among many other functions. This program is designed to add trained observers to the community as a deterrent to crime and allow sworn law enforcement officers to be able to provide more focus on necessary law enforcement duties. In the first nine months of 2013 these volunteers, operating four patrol cars, logged 41,475 miles on 425 patrols over 3,526 hours. In the process they assisted 158 stranded motorists; responded to 41 traffic accidents, conducted 71 traffic control and 11 escort assignments; and conducted 781 special patrol checks. They also participated in 39 Community Outreach events with the Crime Prevention Unit.
The volunteers also serve at both the public lobby of the Detention Center and main entrance of the Courthouse. There they work with an assigned deputy to screen visitors, answer questions, and provide information and directions. Volunteers worked 1469 hours at the Detention Center and 859 hours at the Courthouse as of the end of September.
Volunteers also support In-service and Basic Law Enforcement Training events, and Citizens’ Academy classes. Community Outreach events allow volunteers to work with Crime Prevention Unit deputies in better informing the public about the Sheriff’s Office and the many programs available. Typically these occur at community festivals, big and small, and business sponsored events.
Volunteers also frequently accompany a deputy in transported patients that have been ordered involuntarily committed to a facility within the State. By performing this duty it allows for one deputy or Detention Office per shift to remain in the County for an entire shift. 517 hours were contributed by 11 volunteers in the first 9 months of 2012.
We also have one volunteer that assists in the operation of the Sheriff’s helicopter. He often flies as an observer and is a fully training Forward Looking Infrared Radar (FLIR) operator. The Sheriff also recently added volunteers to the Marine Patrol Unit. Functioning as additional crew members of the unit boats the augment the activities of the onboard deputies while patrolling the waterways of Brunswick County. Began in late April, 8 volunteers have already logged 497 hours in this capacity.
We also have two specialized volunteer units. A critical function is performed by our Chaplain’s Corps by providing spiritual support for employees, and victims of violent crime or accidents and their families. Eight dedicated Brunswick County clergy make up this unit and have worked nearly 600 hours since January. The other unit is a 4 volunteer team dedicated to the review of Unsolved Cases within the Sheriff’s Office. This specialized team made up of retired law enforcement investigators has devoted 1179 hours on several cases and in support the Sheriff’s Office financial crimes and fraud detective.
Sheriff Ingram has often said “we could not do our job without these valuable volunteers”. A total of 117 volunteers have contributed to these efforts in 2013, with 37 of them already in excess of 100 hours each for the year to date. Collectively and individually this amounts to a 50% increase in hours contributed over 2012 results, and a 60% increase in value to the taxpayers, mainly due to the expanded number of functions.
