COP (Citizen on Patrol)

While we live in an area considered more crime free than other areas, crime still takes place.  Citizens and their every day observations are the first line of defense to keeping our HOA a safe and secure environment. 

SAPD offers residents the opportunity to participate in a special community involvement program named Citizen On Patrol (COP). The purpose of the COP Program is to prepare residents to be the “eyes and ears” of the police and to promote closer cooperation between residents and city agencies that exist to serve them.

To join COP,  you must fill out the COP Class Application and attend 2 – 4 hour training classes. This information can be found on the SAPD Citizen on Patrol webpage.

If you are interested in joining or learning more about our Citizen on Patrol (COP) group, that SAPD trains and sanctions, please email Dennis Westberg at and visit the SAPD Citizen on Patrol webpage for more information on how to join.
