Police volunteers are mainly recruited from the Citizen Police Academy. However, other residents of Buffalo Grove can apply to be part of the Volunteer Program. 

The volunteers attend special events throughout the year assisting with pedestrian traffic control at Buffalo Grove Days and events at the Buffalo Grove High School. A few of the events and things they also assist with include:
  • Weekly court transmittals
  • Trustee packet delivery
  • Investigative filing
  • Citizen patrol
  • Bike rodeos
