The California Highway Patrol Mojave Area Office is looking for a few good men and women willing to give something back to their community. The Mojave area is now recruiting people 55 and older who will contribute volunteer time to the Mojave Area office. Lt. Julian Irigoyen, Commander of the Mojave Area CHP office, said he is seeking energetic and enthusiastic volunteers. The Lieutenant is looking for quality, motivated individuals that want to give back to their community in a positive way.
The volunteers perform a variety of duties that include administrative functions, participation in community events, directing traffic, and assisting officers as needed. They can also ride along with officers, serving as an extra set of eyes in search of vehicle code violations. Volunteers must be able to pass a background check, have a good driving record, and successfully complete an in house academy. Anyone interested in finding out more about this program may call Officer Darlena Dotson @ (661) 823-5500 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Mojave Foundation strongly encourages residents to get involved with CHP, and donating our time is the best way to increase the connectivity between law enforcement and the community. Volunteers are still the best way to improve safety and security in Mojave.
