C.O.A.T. (Community Outreach Assistance Team) is a team of specially trained Police Officers that are community oriented. The goal of C.O.A.T. is to help citizens after a critical incident. A critical incident is a distressing, traumatic event which can occur in the community or at the workplace. If you have been involved in a critical incident, our team may follow up with you to determine what resources would best benefit you.
These contacts are a way to build a relationship with our community members after a critical incident had passed. The purpose of the resources is to provide help independent from the Police. For questions regarding this program, contact Officer Joel Zietsma.
