    There are opportunities to serve everywhere—even in the passenger seat of a police car. In the latest episode of “Here to Help,” producer Devan Butler takes you on a ride-along with volunteer police workers. He learned that some of the most needed service is waiting to be done in your own neighborhood.

    “We believe that police can’t do their jobs properly without citizens stepping up and assisting—seeing something, saying something,” says Detective Dennis McGowan of the Salt Lake City Police Department. “We just have to get the community involved to be able to accomplish our mission in a proper fashion.”

    Listen in to hear about Devan's experience and to learn how you can have one like it. For information on other service opportunities, visit
