Community Oriented Policing Services

Community Outreach

The Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) Unit is comprised of specially-assigned officers who are primarily responsible for maintaining ties with neighborhoods in Charles County that participate in the COPS program.

Each participating neighborhood works with one COPS officer who helps implement crime prevention programs and addresses problems and concerns within that neighborhood. COPS officers also attend neighborhood meetings and conduct foot, bicycle and ATV patrols as part of special operations and to make themselves more easily approachable while in their assigned neighborhoods.

As a result of their diverse training, COPS officers are often assigned to special details to address specific crime trends. COPS officers also participate in many community outreach activities.
