Castro Community on Patrol - Volunteers Needed

Volunteers Needed



Castro Community On Patrol (CCOP) members are unpaid community volunteers who make a positive difference in the Castro neighborhood.


Opportunity Description

Join a small patrol group helping keep the Castro safe!

Patrolling is fun, productive, and worth-while for everyone. We ask our Patrol Volunteers to commit to a minimum of one 3 hour patrol each month or 12 patrols per year. You can select which nights work best for you, and you can even arrange to go out on patrol with friends, family, or loved ones if they are also qualified patrol members!

Patrol Volunteer training is a combination of a written training manual which candidates must read, followed by a 3 hour practical certification class which was developed in cooperation with the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD), San Francisco Safety Awareness For Everyone ( and officers of the Community Patrol Service USA (CPS-USA) organization. After successful completion of the written and practical training, newly designated Trainee Patrollers must complete four supervised patrols with supervisory Patrollers in order to advance to full Patroller status.

Get involved in YOUR community! The next 3 hour training is on Saturday Sept. 21!
