SCOPE Volunteers to Limit Tricks
Citizens on Patrol (COP) is a community safety program that involves citizen volunteers driving through neighborhoods to provide a visible deterrent to crime. Using retired sheriff's patrol cars, the COP participants can quickly alert deputies to potential or active criminal activity.
Although not every SCOPE Station has an active COP program, nearly all will have their stations open for some portion of Halloween Night to provide safe haven if needed.
