The specially marked ‘Citizens On Patrol’ Chevrolet Impala is equipped with a police radio to keep in contact with dispatch and a yellow emergency light bar. There are no blue or red lights.
These volunteers will be primarily responsible for patrolling neighborhoods, business complexes, and parks looking for anything out of the ordinary or suspicious. They will then report over the radio and a nearby police unit will respond. They can also assist stranded motorists or direct traffic at collision scenes.
