The City of Aliso Viejo’s Police Assistance Liaison Services is a volunteer program for adults over the age of 21. Though PALS volunteers do not necessarily need to reside in the City, it is highly recommended that they reside near the Aliso Viejo area. The volunteers are assigned operational and administrative duties normally performed by uniformed officers. This support gives deputies more time to concentrate on law enforcement related functions. Volunteers must complete a Live Scan and background check.
Provide assistance at most of the events that take place in the city. PALS members provide traffic control and logistical support to staff the events. During periods of high fire danger, PALS will patrol in designated areas of the City in order to reduce the potential for fires being started. PALS members conduct routine patrols throughout the City and report items of concern such as graffiti, unsecured gates leading into parks, suspicious vehicles or persons they might see. PALS members work closely with the Crime Prevention Unit and assist with programs that help reduce the potential for criminal activity in the City.
Training and uniforms will be provided.
