If you live in Paradise and you're interested in serving your community you may want to consider becoming a volunteer with the police department.
The town of Paradise is looking for a few people to serve as VIPS.
VIPS are a team of trained citizen volunteers who assist the police department with non-enforcement duties in patrol, traffic control, administrative work and crime scene security.
One volunteer we spoke with says his life would be a lot different if he would not have made the decision to join VIPS three years ago.
If you are interested in the program, you have until March 21st to fill out an application.
