Participants & Tasks

Citizens on Patrol are your neighbors who after being screened, background checked, and trained by the Longwood Police Department patrol your neighborhoods, industrial and business areas acting as extra "eyes and ears" for law enforcement.

The main goals and purpose are to observe and report all suspicious activities and never to engage, apprehend or follow individuals suspected of suspicious activities.

The main purpose and mission of the COP Command Emergency Response Unit are to provide on-site rapid response and support.

The trailer is ready for immediate activation with highly trained COP and Auxiliary members on a 24-hour basis.
