Welcome!
...In Partnership for Safer Communities...that is the vision of the Texas Citizens on Patrol Association (TCOPA). In June 2008, several law enforcement agencies from around the State of Texas joined together at the first ever Texas Citizens on Patrol State Conference in Granbury, Texas to form the TCOPA. The TCOPA intends to be a non-profit 501-3c Tax Exempt organization that was formed to help Citizens on Patrol organizations across the state become more organized, better trained, and provide resource sharing so that they can be successful in their communities by reducing crime and supporting their law enforcement agencies through observing and reporting crime.

Our Mission Statement:

To promote a long term partnership between citizens and all Police Departments within the State of Texas. To educate and assist all law enforcement programs thoughout the State to help better support law enforcement agencies in their areas.
