The next Crime Watch Patrol class is scheduled for Wednesday May 7th, from 10am – 2pm.
If you are interested in becoming a patrol member, please follow this link to apply: http://www.cor.net/index.aspx?page=512
The program is for residents who can volunteer their time to patrol their neighborhood and report suspicious activity to police. You choose your own schedule. We only ask that you contribute about an hour or more each month to help your patrol group.
We provide magnetic signs to each patrol group to share and use on their vehicle while patrolling, and if you choose to walk, we have vests you can wear. Being visible and putting criminals on notice that neighbors are watching is key to the success to this program and keeping crime away.
If you have questions, contact the RPD Crime Prevention Unit at 972-744-4955
