The Handicapped Enforcement Action Team, or H.E.A.T., was founded in 1990 to assist police officers in the enforcement of handicapped parking. Members issue summonses for handicapped parking violations and may have to appear in court to testify. They are provided with a police radio, a blue H.E.A.T. polo shirt, and a Volunteer Services vehicle. Members schedule their own time to work and usually work in teams of 2.
Anyone interested in becoming a H.E.A.T. volunteer must complete a volunteer application and successfully pass a thorough background investigation and oral interview. You will not be denied acceptance due to gender, color, race, religion, creed, or national origin. Those that are accepted will complete specific training before conducting any handicap enforcement. Please submit your volunteer application to the Volunteer Coordinator, Officer Greg Young.
