The Crime Prevention Center has been located at 2910 3rd Ave. N since 2011 and houses the volunteer program along with several officer programs.
CPC Volunteer Programs
The CPC has two main volunteer programs: Volunteer Patrol Unit and Report Writing. The Volunteer Patrol Unit is responsible for tagging abandoned vehicles in Billings and issuing non-moving violations everywhere except downtown. Report Writers are responsible for completing theft and vandalism reports where there are no suspects or evidence to be followed up on.
If you’d like to volunteer at the CPC, please fill out the volunteer application and return it to the Crime Prevention Center via mail, email, or in person. A background check will be completed before you are considered for a position. We ask volunteers to contribute roughly four hours per week for a minimum of one year.
CPC Fingerprint Service
The CPC also does fingerprints by appointment for those seeking background checks necessary for work licenses, employment backgrounds, or security clearances. Appointments can be made by calling (406) 247-8590. Each fingerprint card costs $20 (cash or check) and you must present a current picture ID. The number of fingerprint cards is determined by the requesting agency.
