Auxiliary Police

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

The Holyoke Auxiliary Police Division is a volunteer organization which supplements the Holyoke Police Department.  It consists of an Auxiliary Police Chief and approximately 64 members. 

The Auxiliary Police supports the Holyoke Police Department’s Bureau of Field Operations for services such as the Saint Patrick’s Road Race and Parade, Boston Marathon at Hopkinton, Ludlow Triathlon and Our Lady of Fatima Street Procession, July Fireworks, Celebrate Holyoke, Local Church Details, Parades, Veteran's Ceremonies, and Emergency Services.

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

The HAPD also has a Special Uniformed Honor / Color Guard.
