The VLEOA is a tax-exempt 501-C (3) public charity organization that has quickly become the leader in the training and support of volunteer, reserve, and auxiliary law enforcement officers world-wide.
One unique aspect of our Alliance is our ability to assist sheriffs, chiefs of police, county commissions, and city councils in the formation or expansion of volunteer policing programs, which allow communities to maintain the safety and security of their citizens during challenging economic times, and immerse properly trained citizens into policing.
To assist in the formation, expansion and training of state, county and city volunteer law enforcement units and to promote awareness of the role of the volunteer officer in providing for the safety of the citizens of their communities. The VLEOA will strive to be the leader in the training, support and service to the reserve and auxiliary law enforcement officer by providing a network for the exchange of ideas and information.
