VIP Volunteer Application

Volunteers In Policing (VIP) are one of Largo Police Department's greatest resources. VIPs are courteous observers that watch over our community. Whether supporting patrol officers, directing traffic or performing other duties, a VIP is truly very important. When you volunteer, you will have the opportunity to learn more about law enforcement while helping the community. You will make new friends, experience the feeling of making a difference, and have fun!


VIP training is mandatory for all those who want to participate in a patrol position. The training consists of:

  • Classroom instruction
  • Field training with a season VIP

All areas of training are thoroughly covered until the volunteers are confident in their assignment.


To be a VIP you must:

  • Be courteous and professional
  • Be a team player
  • Be physically able to perform duties
  • Pass a criminal background check
  • Be 21 years of age or older

For questions or more details, contact Sergeant Chris Burke at (727)587-6730 Ext. 7472
