Mount Pleasant’s first COP house is well on its way to completion.
Located in the 2200 block of Mead Street on the village’s southeast side, the home is the first of its kind for Mount Pleasant police’s COP program (Community Oriented Policing).
Construction of the single-family home is being financed by a $350,000 grant from SC Johnson. The home – like all COP houses throughout the area – is owned by Racine Community Outpost and will eventually transition into a single-family home.
Office Nicole Schiro is the neighborhood’s COP officer, also a first for MPPD. She will operate primarily out of the house once it’s finished later this fall.
