Citizens on Patrol

The mission of C.O.P.S is to build safer communities by mobilizing Sexsmith citizens to participate in a community-based crime prevention initiative in co-operation with our local law enforcement agencies. It is for citizens to actively assist police officers by relieving some of their workload.
 
C.O.P. volunteers patrol parks, schools, businesses, hotels, and residential neighborhoods. Patrol duties include observing and reporting any unusual or suspicious activities to RCMP or County Peace officers. These special volunteers provide a deterrent to crime and a feeling of security for citizens and visitors by remaining highly visible in the community. Citizens on Patrol do not carry weapons or have powers of arrest.
