Citizens on Patrol (COPs)

Citizens on Patrol are volunteers who patrol areas of the city during peak times of criminal activity. They provide an extra set of eyes for the Allen Police Department.
Citizens on Patrol must graduate from the Citizen Police Academy and complete additional training in:
  • Proper radio procedures
  • Proper and safe operation of a marked department vehicle
  • Gaining a working knowledge of directions and locations within the city
  • Learning how to be an alert and effective observer and how to accurately report what is observed
