The Community Oriented Policing Unit is comprised of 17 officers and three sergeants who work in the three geographical patrol areas that make up the City of Aurora.
Each patrol area is assigned its own COP squad which consists of a sergeant and five to six officers. The officers in return are assigned to the various designated police districts within their assigned area.
These officers act as trouble-shooters addressing various crime and quality of life issues that affect the City of Aurora, specifically within their assigned area/district. Taking an ownership-like mentality, these officers work hand-in-hand with the residents and businesses to make their community a better place to live and work. These officers accomplish this by employing Community Oriented Policing philosophies combined with the strategies and practices of Problem-Oriented Policing.
