RSVP Volunteer Program
The Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) was established in 1985 and is the second longest tenured program of its kind in the nation. Members are volunteers of the City of San Clemente and are assigned to support San Clemente Police Services and provide services to the citizens of San Clemente. Approximately 35 men and women provide nearly 11,400 hours annually of support work as volunteers.
What RSVP Does
The RSVP Volunteer Program enhances the ability of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department to focus its paid personnel resources on proactive law enforcement activities by providing parking enforcement, traffic and crowd control for City Special Events, clerical office support, placement of speed radar trailers, assistance if called to an emergency, and other activities as needed by San Clemente Police Services.
In addition, the RSVP Volunteer Program provides services to the citizens of San Clemente including Vacation Home Checks, visits to the homebound as part of the You Are Not Alone Program (YANA), staffing the PACT House (Police and Community Together) at the Pier, and providing after school tutoring to Elementary students as part of the GRIP Program (Gang Reduction Intervention Program).
