Police Auxiliary Citizens' Team
The Police Auxiliary Citizens’ Team (P.A.C.T.) is a volunteer program for adults residing in Laguna Niguel. Volunteers are assigned operational and administrative duties normally performed by uniformed officers. This support gives deputies more time to concentrate on law enforcement-related functions.
