Citizens on Patrol Program

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.

Speed Watch Program

Volunteers set up clearly marked speed boards in areas where motorists are known to speed. The volunteers record the licence plate numbers of those going over the posted speed limit, and forward the information to the RCMP. 

Volunteers for Citizens on Patrol and Speed Watch

The City and RCMP are always recruiting volunteers for the programs. Volunteers interested in applying for a COP and/or Speed Watch position can view our COP Volunteer page here.
