Volunteers in Police Services
SSPD volunteer program participants have contributed more than 6,200 volunteer hours since the program’s inception in November of 2011; with volunteers donating their time from administrative support to working within our Citizens on Patrol program, patrolling neighborhoods, conducting house checks, traffic assistance, and other activities.
This popular program allows citizens the opportunity to assist Sandy Springs Police in a variety of ways. COPs provide "eyes and ears" to the department, as well as provide assistance in traffic-related incidents, conducting house checks on residences when the owners are out of town, and supporting our SSPD team at special events. Unit members are graduates of the 12-week Citizens Police Academy and 12-week Citizens on Patrol training program. The Volunteer Coordinator for the COP unit is Steve Rose. You can contact him at 770.551.6927.
