Citizens on Patrol (COPS)

Decatur’s Citizens on Patrol (COPS) program provides trained citizen volunteers who assist the Decatur Police Department with designated non-confrontational activities as civilian patrollers and administrative volunteers in order to increase citizen understanding and participation in police activities, enhance crime prevention, and provide additional man-power to improve service to the community. 

Participation in the COPS program is open to active members of the Decatur Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association who have and maintain back-ground and driving checks, and who have completed DCPAAA program training. 

For more information regarding the Decatur COPS program contact the department or visit TXCOP for more details regarding citizen on patrol programs.
