As a part of the Carrollton
Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association,
the Citizen Patrol
Members are the extra eyes and ears for
Police Department. The Citizens on Patrol can be seen
throughout the city
patrolling in vehicles marked and equipped
for the Carrollton Citizen Patrol Organization.
Our volunteers are equipped with
police radios inside the vehicles, as well as hand held units. The volunteers also have emergency
equipment such as
safety traffic vests, flashlights with traffic wands,
road flares and cones and
GPS navigation systems.
Volunteers are each assigned
individual patrol ID numbers and badges that are registered with the City
and with 911 Dispatch. Our volunteers go
with dispatch just as our police officers do, allowing our
volunteers and 911
Dispatch to work together as the members patrol the city.
The members can be sent to aid
police officers in various activities--such as traffic control
for accidents, missing persons’ searches and
abandoned and illegally parked vehicles.
The group also delivers warrants,
court filings, grand jury documents and
case evidence to Dallas, Denton and Collin Counties
