How it Works



Patrol Log



elcome to the Cochrane Citizens on Patrol a unique and diverse group of committed volunteers dedicated to maintaining a safe and crime free community.

The Cochrane Citizens on Patrol (C.O.P.) Program originated when the Community Policing Advisory Committee (CPAC) expressed an interest informing a partnership with the RCMP to address the problems in the community with regards to break and enters, vandalism impaired drivers, and young offenders.

Since 1994 this group has continually served the citizens by working in partnership with the RCMP and the community, providing eyes and ears of Cochrane.  The Citizens On Patrol Program is under the umbrella of the Community Policing Advisory Committee (CPAC).

The Citizens on Patrol are an active group of volunteers that work in cooperation with the RCMP. They go out into our community and report any suspicious activity or note suspicious persons or vehicles in the area. C.O.P. volunteers NEVER BECOME INVOLVED IN AN INCIDENT and only report what they see.
