St. Lucie County Sheriff Mascara announces beach cleanup Saturday by Citizens Observation Patrol
On Saturday, May 2, at 9 a.m., volunteers from the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office Citizen Observation Patrol will conduct a Beach Cleanup. The cleanup will run from Blue Heron Boulevard to John Brooks Park on South A-1-A, St. Lucie County.

The Citizen Observation Patrol (“COP” for short) program has 300 members who patrol residential communities, water ways and parks throughout St. Lucie County.

For the past several years, the South Beach District group has cleaned a one-mile section of South Beach along and a one-mile stretch of South A1A. This year is the first time that all of the members of the COP program were invited to help with the beach cleanup. 

The goal of the COP program is to help reduce crime by adding extra sets of eyes and ears to our communities, supplementing the work of law enforcement.

Saturday’s event is to show that COP members are proud to be part of our team in keeping St. Lucie County clean and crime-free.

People can get more information on how to join the Citizen COP program by calling the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office Crime Prevention Unit at 871-5303 or by visiting the Sheriff’s Office web site at  www.stluciesheriff.com.
