Volunteer Services

The Citizens On Patrol is the heart of the Volunteer Program. As a COP, you will learn the proper operation of the city vehicles, cell phones, radios, radar units, and other devices. You will be trained on the paperwork to support those functions and work closely with the Community Program Officers, other department personnel and other volunteers. As a COP you will participate in pairs or groups in Witness Subpoena Program, Disabled Parking Citations, Park & Ride and City Park Patrol, Extra Neighborhood Patrol, Vacation House Checks, Officer Assistance, and Neighborhood Speed watch utilizing the radar trailer or radar gun.
