Citizens and Police United
The COP Mobile program is designed to reduce property crimes
such as auto and residential burglaries by directing strategic patrols
to areas in need of a visible presence.
These city-owned vehicles are not designed in any way to resem-
ble a police patrol car, yet gives a clear indication that the driver is
trained to contact police immediately if they view suspicious activity,
a crime in progress, or even a medical emergency.
Citizens On Patrol Mobile
After becoming a member of
Citizens on Patrol, volunteers will
be able to cooperate with their
neighbors to patrol your community.
However, patrolling is not the only
function that members perform to
benefit their neighborhoods. Groups
have performed litter cleanup,
received grants to fund beautifica-
tion projects and worked with UTA
students to combat graffiti.
Volunteers may also participate
by helping to train new officers in
scenario training that resemble
the types of patrol calls they may
Additionally, volunteers will also
have the opportunity to spend the
day with the Crime Prevention Unit
at safety fairs to educate the com-
munity about crime prevention and
citizen involvement programs.
