Civil Stand By
A civil stand by is also a service that the Precinct 4 Constable’s Office provides. A civil stand by is a situation where the officer stands by to keep the peace in a situation involving a civil dispute, not a violation of the law. The officer is a neutral party.

A Civil Stand By is done only when officers are available.
To request a Civil Stand By, please complete the Civil Stand By Request Form.
