Chad LaPrelle, Frisco Police Department Community Services officer, calls the members of the Frisco Police Volunteer Association the “eyes and ears” of the FPD.

The FPVA volunteers help fill any police force gaps by helping with patrols, directing traffic, helping with large community events—such as Freedom Fest or Holiday in the Square—or helping the FPD internally in the Community Services and Records divisions, LaPrelle said.
