- Copy of Valid Driver's License
- Verification for Status of Training
- No less than three references from other family members

The law enforcement supervisor will review the applications and complete a background investigation on each of the applicants, apparently qualified. Those successful applicants that have satisfactorily passed a background investigation will be subject to interview by a panel. The panel shall consist of a person from the City of Wichita Department of Law, the Wichita Police Department, and the Municipal Court.
Those recommended by the interview panel, shall be assigned an initial training date. Volunteers will not be able to work until they have successfully completed the initial training course.
Failure to submit the required information, an unsatisfactory finding on a background investigation, or failure to meet the eligibility requirements, will result in the applicant being rejected for a volunteer position.
Failure to submit to or failing a drug/alcohol screen will result in the applicant being rejected for a volunteer position.
