Greenway Volunteer Program

Last updated Sep. 16, 2015 - 2:50 pm

The Raleigh Police Department in partnership with the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department coordinates a Greenway Volunteer Program for the safety, security, and protection of greenway users, park resources, and the surrounding natural areas.

Any citizen interested in helping keep a watchful eye on our growing greenway trails by reporting back to Parks officials any breach in safety, security or maintenance concerns is invited to apply to become a Greenway Volunteer.
