Volunteer Opportunity


Scanning Help Needed in Crime Lab


This is a temporary position, but it may be needed for up to two (2) years, depending upon the number of volunteers who assist with its duties.  The Forensic Services Unit needs help to scan backlogged case file/analyst’s notes dating from 2002 to make them accessible to MPD’s DMS database.  As a Forensic Services Administrative Support Volunteer, your assistance will be greatly appreciated over the length of this long-term project.  Because this project deals with evidence, the full background clearance (Tier 2) is required.  However, only one to two hours of training will be needed to have you operating independently in this assignment. This is a minimum six month commitment.

Desired Skills:  Basic PC familiarity is required, but previous scanning experience is not needed.

Hours Needed:  You may choose your hours from the following options:  Monday between 6:30 am and 4:30 pm; Tuesday between 6:30 am and Noon; Wednesday between Noon and 4:30 pm; and/or Friday between 6:30 am and 4:30 pm.
