SHARPs

"Seniors Helping Area Residents and Police"

SHARP OfficeThe SHARP unit is a volunteer group of men and women over the age of 40 that is dedicated to making a difference by helping improve our community. The SHARP unit was started in August of 1991 by the former Police Chief, Willie Weatherford. The group has grown to 65 members and devotes approximately 21,000 hours annually. The Supervisory Team is composed of 1 Captain, 2 Lieutenants and 8 Sergeants to oversee and manage the group.

Some of the primary duties are to patrol school areas and commercial parking lots to increase safety and deter crime, issue parking citations, tow abandoned vehicles, remove graffiti, assist with clerical duties in the Records' unit, patrol the bike path, and remove signs along the roadways. These are only a few of the assignments and tasks that the SHARP members handle daily. The unit gives 7 days a week support to the Police Department. The SHARP unit continues to grow in members to meet the rising needs of the Police Department and the Community.
