Duluth seeking citizens for virtual patrol program

The Duluth Police Department is looking for citizens to help officers improve incident response time by joining the city’s Virtual Patrol Program. The program allows local businesses and neighborhoods to selectively share video feeds directly with the Duluth Police Department. With this Virtual Patrol Program, police and the community can work together to increase safety and combat crime.

Volunteers in the program will work alongside patrol officers by monitoring cameras, keeping an eye on different locations in the city. A typical shift is 2 hours either daily, weekly or monthly.

Candidates must be age 18 or older, pass a background check, take and pass a GCIC course, and take and pass a Suspicious Activity Reporting course.
