Citizens on Patrol

The Citizens on Patrol (COP) program, a joint program between the City of Trail and the Greater Trail RCMP is funded within the City’s $2.367 million Policing Services Budget. The COP Coordinator works with the City and RCMP to recruit and train volunteers to help reduce crime through being an extra set of eyes and ears within the community. The program supports its volunteers with comprehensive training and all required materials to effectively perform their duties. Using marked vehicles, the teams of volunteers patrol local neighbourhoods to observe and report suspicious activity. Volunteers never interact in any potentially criminal or dangerous situation – all suspicious or criminal activity is reported to the RCMP.

 The City and RCMP are recruiting volunteers as of May 1, 2019 with the goal of having with the goal of having the volunteer patrollers on the ground by mid-June 2019.
