Videos of COP presentation at 2/5/08 COW meeting
Below are links to most of the presentation Bill Graff, Lt. Tom Williams, Jr. and Casey Brown made to the Committee of the Whole this past Tuesday. Mr. Graff was quick to say that Citizens on Patrol would not work were it not for the support of the City’s administration. In addition to using their radios to alert police about suspicious behavior they spot on their patrols, COP volunteers are using chemicals to rid our community of graffiti. Mr. Graff displayed a notebook with photos of the graffiti by locations they've removed thus far.
Currently, there are 12 COP volunteers for city wide patrols, but more are needed. Another training class starts later this month, so if you’re at least 21 and would like to participate, call Lt. Williams at 458-4545, and he’ll have you fill out a volunteer application.
