The CSO program is designed for small towns and villages who cannot afford to support a Police Department. The CSO is not a police officer but assumes a visible security and service position within the community. The CSO will wear authoritative attire, patrol in a vehicle or on foot and be armed. The CSO does not enforce the law but can respond to emergencies and urgent situations. The CSO’s responsibility is to stabilize and maintain until Law Enforcement or emergency medical services can arrive at the scene.
