The Daytona Beach Police Department is looking to recruit volunteers to join their Citizens on Patrol (COP) program.
The new program is a volunteer service where residents perform crime watch activities, alert the police department of hazardous and unlawful behavior, and assist police officers when requested.
According to a release from the city, the volunteer program will train civilians to assist DBPD, acting as an extra set of eyes and ears in the fight against crime in and around Daytona Beach.
By their visibility, the citizen patrols serve as a strong deterrent to unlawful actions. In the many areas in which COP patrols are visible, there has been a noticeable reduction in crime rates.
This working relationship between our COP members and our police officers contributes to enhancing the quality of life in Daytona Beach.
To apply, fill out this application and submit to Lana Loss by email.
