It's that time of year when kids start hitting the park, and there's a new C.O.P.P. In town trying to make things safer for them.
The C.O.P.P.S. Citizens on Park Patrol are volunteers with the Tyler Police Department. They check area parks for vandalism,and suspicious or dangerous looking situations, and then report it to the police department.
They are looking for new volunteers, but you must be 18 and have a cell phone to participate. If you're interested, call the Tyler Police Department at 903-531-1071.
