The volunteer law enforcement officer alliance (VLEOA) is a non-profit and non-government organisation established in the United States (US) to promote training and international network amongst international law enforcement and volunteer officers across all uniformed services. Every year, a sponsoring state agrees to organise training workshops for over 150 – 200 law enforcement volunteers around the world. Celebrating their 10 anniversary, the 2019 VLEOA international conference was hosted by the Orange County Sheriff Office (OCSO) at Orlando, Florida.

In 2020, VLEOA introduced the Certified Volunteer Policing Leader (CVPL) to accredit and provide certification for members who meet qualifying criteria of dedicated service to law enforcement and community service. Dr Matthew Yap serves in the VLEOA as board of directors and international area director. For more information, visit www.policereserve.org
