Citizens on Patrol Service, COPS.
The Phelps County Sheriff's Department is starting a new Citizens on Patrol Service (COPS) program, and we need volunteers.
There are many reasons to become involved in the Phelps County Sheriff's Department's COPS program. It is an opportunity for citizens to help protect Phelps County and to become engaged with the Spirit of Public Service. It is also a way for citizens to contribute to positive communications between the community and law enforcement.
COPS assist in controlling, reducing and preventing crime in Phelps County, conducting business and vacation checks, traffic control, and other duties.
Applicants must be at least 21 years old, have a valid driver's license, pass an oral interview and background check, attend a COPS training course, and be able to donate 8 hours a month.
For more information about volunteering with the Citizens on Patrol Service (COPS), contact the Program Director, Deputy Vince Giacolone, at (573) 426-3862 or email him at email@example.com.
I believe it takes law enforcement and citizens to keep our county safe.
