Citizens on Patrol

The Kootenai County Sheriff's Office (KCSO) Citizens on Patrol (COP) Program was established to enhance the relationship between the citizens of Kootenai County and the Kootenai County Sheriff's Office, as well as provide an instrument which enables citizens of the respected communities to assist the Sheriff's Office with duties and service which would otherwise not be available.

Program Implementation

The first COPs group was implemented in the Harrison and Cataldo areas in the spring of 2004. Since that time, a program was implemented in the Athol / Bayview area in the summer of 2005, another group in the Mica / Worley area during the spring of 2007 and the fourth group in the Hayden area in 2008.
