Community Relations

The Cocoa Beach Police Department is committed to providing service for our residents.  While away, you may request a vacant residential house check by simply completing a request form and either faxing it to 321-868-3373 or dropping it off at the police department.  House checks are routinely done by both patrol officers and our citizen observer patrol.

Our Citizen Observer Patrol (COP) is made up of local volunteers who assist the Police Department in a variety of ways.  They are our community partners and our “eyes & ears” as we work together to reduce crime, catch criminals, and improve our quality of life. 

A COP patrols our neighborhoods to provide an increased presence while reporting suspicious activity, conducts vacant house checks, performs traffic control and school crossing, assists with community events, etc.  

Applicants must be at least 19 years of age and a Brevard County resident, possess a valid driver's license, pass a background investigation, and complete training.  To download a copy of the application click here
