The Frisco Police Department sponsors and supervises an all volunteer law enforcement-affiliated program known as Frisco Police Volunteer Association (FPVA). The primary mission of the FPVA is to enhance the individual/collective safety and general welfare of all people in The City of Frisco by assisting the Frisco Police Department in deterring and detecting crime.
The FPVAs program has not only proven to be an effective community policing tool, but also a vital asset to local homeland security efforts. FPVAs members are highly active within the organization and derive a great deal of satisfaction from their service to the police department and community.
Frisco Police Volunteer Association (FPVA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
FPVA members utilize high visibility patrols throughout the city, acting as “eyes and ears” for the police department. This visible presence has been a proven and effective method for both deterring and detecting criminal activity. Members also serve inside the police department in a variety of administrative functions.
Furthermore, through continual training provided by the Frisco Police Department, these volunteers become skilled observers who quickly recognize circumstances which require the attention of law enforcement and/or other emergency first-responders. In addition to high visibility patrols, members also provide traffic control assistance at special events, conduct speed radar surveys, skywatch tower observation, and crime alert card notifications.
