Denver COP Shops are storefronts that place officers in readily accessible commercial areas to aid citizens in preventing crime and accessing police services. The purpose of Denver's cop shops is to provide a convenient place for citizens and local businesses to be able to file police reports such as non-injury auto accidents, thefts, drug activity, graffiti and gang activities. We also furnish assistance to the public with other matters such as zoning issues, neighborhood cleanup, crime prevention, and traffic problems.
The Denver Community Resource Officer Program provides community assistance on issues such as neighbor disputes, public nuisances, zoning issues, fraud and crime prevention, and other neighborhood concerns. Community Resource Officers (CROs) attend regular meetings with neighborhood organizations to provide training on issues pertaining to, but not limited to the Neighborhood Watch program, commmercial and home security, gang awareness, crime prevention, and more.

We need volunteer help.
COP Shops are operated by volunteers who work with the Denver Police Department to assist with citizen complaints, accident reports and various other activities that would normally require a trip to the district station.
