With more than 730 members, the Citizens on Patrol program makes a positive impact on Fort Worth's quality of life.

The Fort Worth Police Department is looking for a few good volunteers to join the nationally-acclaimed Citizens on Patrol program.

As part of the larger Code Blue, the Fort Worth Citizens on Patrol (COP) program was started in 1991 as a reaction to the high crime levels in Fort Worth communities. Since the creation of the program, it has been shown that the volunteers of Citizens on Patrol have helped to lower crime by as much as 40 percent.

Upcoming COP training dates:

Sept. 13, 6-10 p.m., 8755 N. Riverside Drive.
Sept. 15, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., 1289 Hemphill Ave.
Oct. 13, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., 1901 N. Las Vegas Trail.
Nov. 10, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., 1100 Nashville Ave.

Applicants must be 18 years or older, live in the Fort Worth city limits, pass a background check and attend the four-hour training. Interested residents can apply online.

To learn more, call 817-392-4182.
