C.O.P.S. Volunteers

The mission of Spokane Community Oriented Policing Services (C.O.P.S.) is to assist the Spokane Police Department in providing services to the neighborhood for the betterment of the entire community. The intent is to train, educate and enable the community to assume primary responsibility for those conditions in the neighborhood which provide security or have the potential to result in crime. This involves networking and collaboration with neighborhood and community service providers.

  • Front Desk Operations
  • Latent Fingerprinting
  • Property Inspection (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design)
  • Graffiti Reporting
  • Operation Family I.D.
  • Block Watch Coordinator
