Mission Statement

For over 25 years the Glendale Civilian Observation Patrol, (G-COP), has been the extended eyes and ears for the NYPD in Glendale, New York. G-COP is the oldest, largest and most active civilian patrol in the City of New York. G-COP members don"t complain about crime, they do something about it. G-COP members are not vigilantes. We patrol the streets of our neighborhood and via radio report all police fire of medical emergencies to the proper authorities. Recently we have expanded our patrol to cover the three other communities that make up the 104th Precinct. Due to the lack of police manpower in the 104th Precinct, G-COP urges all concerned residents of Glendale, Ridgewood, Maspeth & Middle Village to help us preserve, protect and enhance the quality of life in our communities. In other words, GET OFF YOR REAR AND VOLUNTEER. Minutes after the first highjacked plane hit the North Trade Center Tower and while millions of people were glued to their TV sets, over two dozen G-COP members mobilized. In constant contact with the 104th Precinct we were ordered to patrol the Precinct boundaries and look for anyone looking to commit a crime of opportunity. Around the clock for 5 straight days, G-COP manned the posts around the 104th Precinct and took care of the Combat Parking. This G-COP action freed up 3 to 4 police sector cars to resume patrol and asnwer 911 emergency calls. We are also in the process of assisting the 112th Precinct organize a civilian patrol in Forest Hills. G-COP is responsible for over 100 graffiti related arrests, during a 14 month period, starting in October of 2000. G-COP supervises vandals convicted in Queens Criminal Court that are sentenced to perform community service. During this time of war, we urge all able bodied men and woman to help with the civil defense of our neighborhoods by joining G-COP. ALL IT TAKES FOR EVIL TO THRIVE, IS FOR GOOD MEN & WOMAN GLENDALE, RIDGEWOOD, MASPETH, MIDDLE VILLAGE & FOREST HILLSlTO DO NOTHING! For more information visit our website at: www.g-cop.org
