COP MobileThe COP Mobile program is designed to reduce property crimes
such as auto and residential burglaries by directing strategic
patrols to areas in need of a visible presence. These City-owned
vehicles are not designed in any way to resemble a police patrol
car yet give a clear indication that the driver is trained to contact
Police immediately if they view suspicious activity, a crime in
progress or even a medical emergency.
