South Hill branch of SCOPE struggles to get volunteers

SPOKANE, Wash. - It has been nearly one year since the Spokane Sheriff’s Office expanded its volunteer division - SCOPE - to Spokane’s South Hill.
The leaders for SCOPE, or Sheriff Community Oriented Policing Effort, said they are struggling to find enough volunteers to stay afloat.
SCOPE is supposed to be the eyes and ears of the police. Right now though, their South Hill division is dealing with a number of problems.
For one, they still do not have a permanent place to meet, which is why they have been temporarily meeting at the fire station on 57th and Palouse.
Organizers said the South Hill branch still has a significant need for volunteers. It only takes a couple dedicated leaders to get things up and running, but because most of their volunteers are also working, things are moving slower than hoped.
