The Clarkstown Police Department civilian volunteers will mark their 40th anniversary with dinner and honors on Friday at 7 p.m. at La Terrazza restaurant, 291 S. Main St., New City.
The 29-member auxilliary unit assists officers with traffic and pedestrians at parades, street fairs and other community functions, including memorial events, funerals and July 4th festivities.
The unit was organized in 1973 as a volunteer organization dedicated to supplementing the police department. The auxillary officers operate under the direction of the Clarkstown Police Department.
