The Police Department's volunteer program was initiated in 1992, and continues today. Police volunteers perform a variety of services for the department, including:
Appearing and assisting at special events throughout the year
Police chaplain services
Serving as role players during police training exercises
The police chaplain serves as a means of comfort, support and guidance, not only to the grieving or those in crisis, but to police officers and support staff as well. Regardless of one's religion or beliefs, a chaplain is there to help in a way that officers generally cannot.
For more than 20 years, Rev. Bob Miller has served as the Moline Police Department's chaplain. He has been a steadfast pillar of our agency and has been an invaluable resource to the community, humbly volunteering thousands of hours of his own time to serve others.
Anyone interested in volunteering their time and services can contact the Moline Police Department Services Division at 309.524.2176.
