To increase the ranks of the volunteer Nassau County Auxiliary Police, County Executive Edward P. Mangano announced a recruitment drive, November 10–13, 5:00–9:00 p.m. at local police precincts and policing centers. The Nassau County Auxiliary Police recruitment location for the Five Towns is the Fourth Precinct, 1699 Broadway in Hewlett.
The Auxiliary Police section comprises over 30 community-based units, each made up of dedicated volunteers who prevent and deter criminal activity by routine patrols in marked Auxiliary Police vehicles. They ensure the safety of residents during community events, managing traffic at parades and events such as the Long Island Marathon, fireworks displays, and holiday ceremonies, as well as provide assistance and support services during disasters and other emergencies.
During the recruitment drive, the Auxiliary Police will be recruiting residents between the ages of 18 and 60 to assist the police in protecting our communities. Nassau residents must meet specific qualifications to become a member of the department. If you are interested in volunteering for the Nassau County Auxiliary Police program or to learn more, please attend the local recruitment drive.
