After her first polygraph and background test in June, Elektra Fike-Data was one of the first two volunteers accepted for ASU’s Volunteers in Police Assistance Program. A new crime analysis position was tailored to fit Fike-Data’s interests, said Assistant Chief of ASU Police Jay Spradling.
COPS Radio Interview
Officer Larry Horton of the Phoenix Police Department was interviewed for a Sunday morning radio show about the COPS volunteer program. The interview talks about how COPS is unique compared to other volunteer opportunities with the Phoenix Police and how to become part of the COPS program.
