BSO WANTS YOUR EYES AND EARS
If you’re looking to help make Broward County a safer place to live, work, and raise a family, then BSO’s Citizen Observer Patrol (COP) is looking for you.
COP is a simple yet affective approach to protecting our neighborhoods. Community-minded volunteers help BSO combat crime by touring neighborhoods, acting as additional eyes and ears for the Broward Sheriff's Office.
Wearing uniforms and driving specially marked cars as they patrol their beat, COP members notify BSO of any suspicious happenings or possible hazards. These local residents help provide an additional crime-fighting presence in their communities.
The COP program is active throughout BSO’s jurisdiction and open to Broward County residents 18-years of age or older with a valid Florida driver’s license who can pass a background check. Volunteers must complete at least 4-hours of BSO training and comply with all the program’s policies and procedures.
For more information on joining COP, call your local BSO district headquarters or BSO Countywide Operations at (954) 321-4100.
