Volunteer Opportunity


Preserve the Rights of the Disabled


If you wish to help ensure that parking spaces designated for the disabled remain available to them, please join our Disabled Parking Enforcement team! You will patrol public parking spaces at malls, stores, apartment complexes and other businesses for vehicles not legally parked in spaces reserved for the disabled and write citations for violators. If a violator chooses to challenge your citation through the court system, you will be called upon to testify in court. You may drive your own vehicle and receive mileage reimbursement, or if you drive a department vehicle, you will need to complete Mesa PD's Defensive Driving training course.


Desired Skills:  Ability to deal tactfully and professionally with persons in potentially emotional circumstances; may utilize own means of transportation or a department vehicle to patrol public parking lots; ability to accurately and legibly complete parking citations.

Special Requirements:  Must possess a valid driver's license.

Hours Needed:  Any time.
