-Spokane Police Assistant Chief Craig Meidl
“I enjoy working with COPS West because it allows me to make a difference in someone's life every day. Every time we answer our phone or someone walks in our front door, another opportunity presents itself. For just a few moments, we are able to give our time, attention and knowledge to someone who is in need. Most days we all do a great deal of listening and sometimes that is all that is necessary and expected. We make a difference every day...one person at a time. How many people can say they get to do that in their lives? We help people learn how to help themselves and in the end it is a gift that just keeps on giving!” -Esta R.
“Volunteer! Great initial and ongoing training through Spokane's Community Oriented Policing Services provides you with advanced education in Public Safety and Law Enforcement. C.O.P.S. volunteers are welcomed with "Cheers". Everybody knows your name, listens to you, and makes sure you are heard where action needs to happen. You choose where and when you serve. Should you need a change due to physical or personal circumstances, other options will be provided to keep you involved. You will receive more than you give, I guarantee it!” -Sue H.
