How the Patrol Works

Patrol members gather at the Northeast District Police Station for an update before each shift. The Patrol goes out from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and on designated Saturdays. One of the officers from the Neighborhood Services Unit briefs the volunteers and issues each member their equipment.

After a check in via the issued push to talk cell phones to assure that all members are ready to begin the evening’s shift, cars exit the station and proceed to their assigned post. Usually the post is the member's own neighborhood. This system provides extensive coverage, as members are most familiar with their own and immediate surrounding neighborhoods. In addition to the neighborhoods, assignments include the two commercial corridors. This shift pays special attention when there are shoppers present to assure their safety going to and from their vehicle.

Attention All Patrollers

The police officers acting as the Police Department’s liaisons are working 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. shifts. Please return any equipment no later than 11 p.m. to the Northeast District. This will preclude the Police Department from having to pay overtime to an officer who remains to monitor a patroller who stays on their post after 11 p.m.

The Patrol is in operation from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
