Volunteer in Police

The VIPS program provides support and resources to the Nantucket Police Department. Those who volunteer, help our department maximize resources by allowing officers to focus on other important matters. These needs include supplemental duties that sworn employees do not have the time or manpower to perform. This allows for our services to be most effective for the community.

For more information or if you have questions about the VIPs program, please contact Sergeant Kevin A. Marshall via email or 508-325-4100, ext. 5464.
