Citizens Police Academy PatchSCP & SCPAAA

The Schertz Citizens Patrol (SCP) is a cooperative effort between the Schertz Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association (SCPAAA) and the Schertz Police Department (SPD). Graduates of the Schertz Citizens Police Academy, who become members of the Schertz Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association may become part of the Schertz Volunteer Auxiliary Program.

Any U.S. citizen who is at least 18 years old may become a member of Schertz Volunteer Auxiliary, provided they are of good moral character, free of felony conviction, and successfully complete the application, background, and training process. A volunteer is a non-salaried individual who offers his/her services for a limited time, acting in a specific capacity willingly by one’s own accord. A volunteer has no salary, benefits or labor relations rights of a City employee and serves “at the will” of the Chief of Police. A volunteer can be placed in or removed from volunteer duties by the Chief of Police with or without cause. The volunteer will complete and sign the Schertz Citizens Patrol Agreement.
