Albemarle Police Auxiliary Force Approved

The Albemarle supervisors have approved an auxiliary force for the police department. The volunteers would have to meet the same standards to be hired as a salaried police officer. The number of auxiliary members could not exceed 18 at the current staffing levels. The initial cost would come from the existing police department budget. The department will request that the Albemarle County Police Foundation buy additional future uniforms in the future.
