ABOUT THE SCHEME


ABOUT CITIZENS ON PATROL (SINGAPORE)

Launched in 1999, the Citizens On Patrol (COP) is a volunteer network scheme under the Singapore Police Force.

A similar concept to the more commonly known "neighbourhood watch" - COP volunteers patrol their neighbourhood and the community; and alert the Police when they observe suspicious items, activities or persons.

They also play an important role in engaging the community on crime prevention measures and raising crime awareness during patrols.

Citizens on Patrol members are:
- Appointed on a three-year term,
- Expected to perform a minimum of 2 hours of patrol per month,
- Attached to the Neighbourhood Police Centres (NPCs) that they select, and
- To patrol the neighbourhood, disseminate crime prevention advisories and report to the Police on suspicious items, persons, or crime in progress.
