If you are interested in joining a C.O.P. group that is already in operation in your community, you can contact the group and let them know that you are interested. Before becoming a volunteer with C.O.P., a person is required to be 18 years of age with a valid driver’s license and to fill out an application form. The application form can be downloaded from this website. The application form goes to the local law enforcement agency where a security check takes place. Once approved, contact will be made and the local group will welcome you as a new volunteer.
