WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County citizens are helping make the county a little safer. The Sheriff’s Office announced the launch of its new VIPR program this morning.

VIPR, which stands for Volunteer Intervention Prevention Response, helps with home and business security checks, speed zones and helping with traffic and parking at special events.

Volunteer Coordinator Martin Michaelson says he’s excited to give back to the community.

“We hope to make a significant impact in breaking and enterings, both vehicular and home. We hope to be able to provide a level of comfort to our citizens with regard to the safety on the street and in their homes, and any way that we can assist the sworn deputies, it’ll be our pleasure,” Michaelson said.

VIPR currently has six active volunteers. If you want to learn more, contact the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office Community Services Unit at (910) 798-4227
