Clallam County Sheriff’s Office seeks volunteers for auxiliary patrol team

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — The Clallam County Sheriff’s Office is seeking volunteers for its Olympic Discovery Trail Patrol Auxiliary team.

The bicycle-mounted team patrols the Olympic Discovery Trail under the direction of the sheriff’s office.

Team members report criminal or suspicious behavior, safety issues and ideas that may help to prevent crime.

The team does not have law enforcement authority.

Volunteers will receive training on self-defense, trail etiquette, positive public contacts and first aid.

While patrolling, team members also clean up garbage, used needles and other hazards along the trail.

During a recent patrol, team members removed 35 bags of trash and secured 168 used hypodermic from the Waterfront Trail.

Interested volunteers should email Sgt. Amy Bundy at [email protected].
