Copwatching is our legal right to observe the police. Rose City Copwatch engages in Copwatching patrols. These patrols are organized community efforts to directly observe police stops, searches, and arrests. The patrols aim to reduce police violence and misconduct by their presence,  to demonstrate the community’s right and ability to hold police directly accountable for their actions, and to collect documentation that may be useful in getting justice later on. Contact us if you’d like to get involved with our Copwatch community patrol!
