The Trophy Club Citizens on Patrol consists of volunteers who have completed the Citizen’s Police Academy, COP class, as well as additional training to prepare them to drive a Town vehicle, observing and reporting on suspicious activity. Citizen On Patrol duties include:
Driving Patrols - General patrol around the Town looking for suspicious activity. Patrols include house checks, business checks, and school and park checks.
Traffic Direction: Assist patrol officer(s) by directing traffic at the scene of an accident, power outage or special event. Ongoing safety and refresher training are offered on a regular basis. COP’s are trained volunteers, they are not Peace Officers.
If you are interested in volunteering in this manner, you will need to first complete a Citizen’s Police Academy class. You can apply by submitting this online form (PDF) or calling our Community Service Officer at 682-237-2957.
