Auxiliary Police

Have you ever asked yourself, what can I do to improve my community?

The Auxiliary Police Division  is a volunteer organization which supplements the Holyoke Police Department. It consists of an Auxiliary Chief of Police and approximately 40 volunteers. 

The Auxiliary Police supports the Holyoke Police Department’s Field Operations Bureau with operations such as the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Road Race, Celebrate Holyoke, Hispanic Festival, etc. 

Two marked police cruisers are assigned to this division to facilitate their duties. 

The volunteers assigned to this division also provide assistance during civil defense emergencies such as hurricanes, floods, traffic emergencies, etc.  They also provide assistance to other cities’ law enforcement agencies and charitable organizations.
