Many files available on the COPS Office website are provided in PDF (Portable
Document Format) files. Files ending in .pdf are PDF files. This format
preserves the look and feel of the original printed page.
In order to view PDF files on your computer, you must have a PDF reader program installed. Due to Federal requirements for accessibility, PDF files on our site require version 6 or higher. If you do not already have such a reader, you may download a free reader at Adobe's website.
During your visit to COPS Office Web site, you may be randomly selected to take a customer-satisfaction survey. Your survey response will help us improve our Web site and our service to you.
If you are randomly selected, a pop-up window will lead to the survey. The survey uses a temporary "cookie" that may appear as an extra button in the taskbar at the bottom of your screen. The cookie is erased as soon as you leave and no personal or identifying information is gathered.
If you get the survey pop-up request, please consider completing it for us. Thank you for your time and comments.
