Community Based Patrol
A Community Based Patrol can be everything from a trained group of volunteers, to and an organized group of security professionals utilized to increase the safety and quality of life in a neighborhood.
Using a variety of patrol methods (i.e. vehicle, foot, bicycle, etc.) streets, parks, or schools are patrolled at target hours to deter crime and report incidents and problems to local officials. With limited resources supported by local, state and federal governments, rather than sit back and hope that someone else will take care of a community condition, members are actively and directly involved in solving problems in a community-based, non-confrontational manner. Community Based Patrols collaborate with municipalities, crime prevention coordinators, urban planners, police, neighborhood coalitions and associations, and area businesses to help neighborhood problems receive prompt and effective attention.
