The Prairie Village Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) is a high-visible, non-confrontational volunteer group formed to help reduce and prevent crime in the City of Prairie Village.
The primary task of the VIPS will be to provide crime deterrence through high-visibility patrols, report on in-progress crimes, document suspicious persons or activities and/or unsafe conditions within an assigned patrol area. VIPS members will provide operational assistance to on-duty Department members. VIPS members should keep in mind the inherent liability placed upon the City of Prairie Village whenever on duty. By wearing the uniform and patrolling, members represent the Prairie Village Police Department.
