Volunteer Opportunities


All Applicants Must Have at Least 10 Years of Full-Time Service as a Sworn Law Enforcement Officer and Retired in Good Standings to Apply

COPLINE is a not-for-profit international law enforcement officers' hotline and we're always seeking retired law enforcement officers in good standing to volunteer on our phone lines. Officers are required to complete an online questionnaire, which will be reviewed by our Director and an additional mental health professional. Volunteers will be required to submit current identification from their LE agency as part of the vetting process. After the review has been completed, the volunteer will be contacted by our Director and advised if they've been accepted by our Director or her designee.

If accepted, the volunteer will be asked to participate and complete a 40 hour mandatory training given by mental health professionals and with expertise in law enforcement stressors as well as hotline personnel who are familiar with hotline methodology. Attending training is not an acceptance to being a retired officer active listener. Not all volunteers asked to the training are necessarily vetted to answer the lines. If vetted, the retired officer active listener is asked for a commitment of 2 eight-hour shifts per month for a year. Volunteers can sign up for more than two shifts per month.
