COPCP is always ready to assist our community. Our volunteers patrol daily, acting as an extra set of eyes and ears. They report any immediate issues they see, including police, EMS, and fire emergencies, as well as quality-of-life issues. COPCP also helps with traffic and crowd control on scenes and at events, as well as funeral and religious processions. Our goal is to bring safety to our community and bridge them with the necessary resources.
We are committed to improving the quality of life of our residents by investing and developing our most valued assets. You. You includes anyone and everyone that wishes to help make our communities a safe and better place to live for the youth. Our core values are built on unity.
Assisting Our Community:
We assist with translation for reports including rides to the precinct, domestic violence cases, car accidents, and other issues. Our volunteers also offer guidance to community members in knowing their rights and ensuring a report is made as necessary. In addition, we also assist the police with traffic control and religious and funeral processions so that patrol officers can respond to 911 calls. By working with the police and the community, we can help make our neighborhoods a safer and more enjoyable place for everyone.
COPCP volunteers undergo extensive training and certifying to ensure they can handle all situations they may encounter and are equipped with emergency communication. Our advisors include active and retired first responders.
