    Beaverton Police Department (BPD) has a unique opportunity for an experienced volunteer engagement professional to join the BPD Community Services Team as a Community Engagement Coordinator. This role will involve a blend of community outreach and volunteer management and is an exciting opportunity to take the police and emergency management volunteer programs to a new level after several years of pandemic-related pauses.
    The Community Engagement Coordinator will be the primary point of contact for prospective BPD volunteers and assist with coordinating community events from school visits to neighborhood block parties.
