Citizens on Patrol Services (COPS)
The Rancho Mirage Citywide COPS Program was formed in 1994, by resolution of the City Council, to serve as the "eyes and ears" for the Sheriff's Department. RMCOPS is made up of volunteers, ages 21 and older, who reside within the Coachella Valley. They assist in the reduction of crime by providing high visibility, direct communication and random daily patrols. As ambassadors of the City, they are trained by the Riverside County Sheriff's Department and Palm Springs Police Citizens' Academy in nonconfrontational matters, various aspects of police surveillance, reporting procedures, traffic control, CPR, first aid and emergency preparedness. There are currently approximately 40 members who provide about 1,000 hours monthly in volunteer service.
Rancho Mirage COPS meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month at 9:30 a.m. at Rancho Mirage Public Library.
