Fairborn's Citizen's Patrol


The Fairborn Citizen's Patrol (FCP) was established in 2005. The FCP is made up of a group of citizen volunteers who have dedicated their time to assist the Fairborn Police Department and the community in which they live.

Four weeks of classes are taught at the Fairborn Police Department in three-hour sessions. Upon successful completion of the course, members are issued their uniforms and equipment. Members of the Fairborn Citizen's Patrol are not armed and do not have arrest powers.
