BLACKFOOT â€“Â The Citizen's on Patrol (COP) program needs more volunteers. The core group consists of about 16 volunteers and Sgt. Jeff Mosbrucker with the Blackfoot Police Department says "it just isn't enough."
"COP's are the eyes and ears for the police," said Mosbrucker. "They're already trained and they help ease the load so officers can focus on other things."
For the month of December COP's donated 51.5, hours of their time. Mosbrucker says the police department would like to see a big increase in that number â€“â€“ but it will require more volunteers.
