The LAFD Volunteer Photographer Program (VPP) provides Angelenos an opportunity to interact with the LAFD in exciting ways.

The VPP provides a cadre of local photographers to assist the LAFD in photographing non-emergency Department events such as graduations, promotional ceremonies and other unique occasions. Photographers who successfully complete four events qualify for a ride along with the LAFD.

LAFD Chief Ralph Terrazas says, "The Volunteer Photographer Program is a wonderful way for members of the Greater Los Angeles Community to get acquainted with the LAFD and bring their photography skills to showcase the Department."

If you have a passion for photography and a commitment to the City, the LAFD VPP may be a great opportunity. Photographers selected for this program often have their photos featured on LAFD social media, in Department manuals and more, with exposure to thousands of viewers worldwide.
