Citizens Assisting Police in Apex

Our Purpose

To provide support and assistance through volunteerism to the Apex Police Department by partnering together to serve our community with pride and integrity

Our Mission

CAPA volunteers are committed to serving the Apex Police Department by assisting in administrative, non-police roles, thereby freeing up Officers so they may more effectively perform their duties. CAPA volunteers are also committed to serving the Town of Apex and community, as ambassadors and diplomats, by providing resources and services that enhance the Peak of Good Living’s quality of life.

Who Is CAPA and What Do We Do?

Citizens Assisting Police in Apex (CAPA), is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization existing in partnership with the Apex Police Department.  CAPA members assist the APD, in support roles and without pay.  Members do not carry weapons, cannot make arrests and are NOT sworn officers.  CAPA members are volunteers committed to ‘serving those who serve’.

CAPA is highly visible at Town events such as Apex Peakfest, Peak City Pig Fest, Apex Music Festival, Apex Night Out, Christmas with a Cop, Town Parades and many more.  Members assist with traffic flow, crowd management and are the eyes and ears of the Apex Police Department.  CAPA also provides child and senior medical IDs at several events throughout the year, and assists the APD with their charitable events supporting Special Olympics of NC and their many community outreach programs serving the Town of Apex.
