Why volunteer?

Spokane C.O.P.S. needs you, because this community needs you! We all want to make this community a better place to live, a better place to raise our families. Whether you are looking for experience for your resume, a hobby to engage in, a cause to serve, or any number of other reasons why someone might volunteer with C.O.P.S., we have something for you. Becoming a C.O.P.S. Volunteer is a great opportunity to meet new friends, participate in special events, and for gaining knowledge and experience while making a valuable contribution to your community. Working with crime prevention programs, working alongside law enforcement, working with city programs, working the front desk, wherever your strengths and interests lie in making this community a better, safer place, we have something for you. Contact either your local C.O.P.S. shop or call our main office at 509-625-3300 for more information.
