Volunteers Needed


The three zones are: ZONE 1 - Hyde Park, Hyde Villa, Saylor Farm Estates, ZONE 2 - Temple, Temple Heights, South Temple, Cherokee Ranch, ZONE 3 - Riverview Park, Muhlenberg Park, Wheatland, Reading Crest, Shiedy Acres, Rivers Bend, Rivers Bend II, River Crest, Reed Farm, Heather Knoll, Whitford Hills, Whitford Hills West, Rivers Point, Rivers Edge, Kings View Estates, Laurel Commons, Valley View Trailer Park.


We need volunteers in each of the 3 zones.  If we get 60 volunteers in each zone, your patrol obligation would be about every 3 weeks.  Patrols would be with a partner of your choice or we can pair you up with another person.  Patrols would last 2 to 4 hours in the evening.


Neighborhood crime prevention is a joint responsibility between the police and the community.  The prevention of crime, particularly crime involving residential neighborhoods, is a responsibility that must be shared equally by law enforcement and private citizens.


The fact is the impact on crime prevention by law enforcement alone is minimal when compared to the power of private citizens with law enforcement and with each other.


A neighborhood watch is based on cooperation, and nationwide statistics prove that it does work.  When citizens take positive steps to secure their own property and neighbors learn how to report suspicious activity around their homes, burglary and related offenses decrease dramatically.


Throughout the United States, dramatic decreases in burglary and related offenses are reported to law enforcement in communities with active neighborhood watch programs.  Statistics show that when a concerned citizenry does its part, the possibilities are endless, and the results are positive.


Neighborhood watch is now the most successful anticrime initiative in the country and the most effective and least expensive tool for restoring the safe, pleasant environment we all want for our families!  It has been shown over and over in communities where there is a strong bond between neighbors that the crime can be reduced as much as forty percent.


This homeowners insurance really works!  Your participation is vital for the success of this neighborhood watch program.  Can you afford it?  The fact is you really cannot afford to be without it.


The best part is it is FREE!
