[ARCHIVED] Citizens On Patrol Program Kicks-Off

On July 1, 2013, Kerrville Chief of Police John M. Young, Jr., announced the kick-off of the first Citizens on Patrol (C.O.P.) team to hit the Kerrville streets.

The C.O.P. Class #1, which consisted of eleven C.O.P. members, graduated and were sworn in by Chief Young on May 14th, after having completed both classroom and field training.

The C.O.P. Program is designed to provide education, monitor, and enforce handicap parking violations in parking areas located within businesses inside the City of Kerrville.

C.O.P. members, who serve as volunteers, are also graduates of the Kerrville Police Department Citizen Police Academy and members of the Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association.

A grace period is being given for the month of July, in which C.O.P. members will only be giving warnings for handicap violations found. Most common violations found are: Expired Handicap Placards, Parking in striped areas near Handicap slots, and Parking incorrectly in parallel handicap parking slots.
