Kelly Cheney, Vancouver Police Department-Volunteer Coordinator
Kelly has been managing the Volunteer Police Department's Volunteers In Police Services (VIPS) program since 2008 and coordinates over 130 volunteers. The program allows citizen volunteers to help maximize existing police resources, enhance public safety and service delivery, as well as, provide new program opportunities. She says that managing citizen volunteers in a law enforcement setting has some unique characteristics. Her ultimate goal as VIPS volunteer coordinator, is to provide meaningful and fun opportunities to citizens who want to support the Vancouver Police Department's important public safety mission.
Her favorite inspirational quote is, "Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something." -Author
As a DVPA member, Kelly enjoys connecting to passionate people in her field and professional training opportunities that help her grow in her role as a volunteer coordinator.
