| Please consider joining the Crime Watch Patrol.|
Class set for March 25th, from 6pm to about 9:00pm
Read below for more information or take a look at our Crime Watch Patrol recruitment video at the following link.
The Crime Watch Patrol program asks citizens to volunteer as little as an hour a month to drive your neighborhood, reporting anything suspicious that you may see. The City of Richardson supplies Crime Watch Patrol signs for each group to use on their vehicles. The continued visible presence of an active group of citizens sends the message to would be criminals in the area that their presence will be reported immediately. This risk of apprehension can be an effective deterrent to crime.
Each applicant will need to complete the online application at here and pass a background check before attending a Crime Watch Patrol training class.
If you have any questions, contact the Crime Prevention Unit at 972-744-4955.
This year we are partnering with the Richardson Rotary Club to place flags in the neighborhood. This is in addition to the flags we have been placing in the parkways.
This Richardson Rotary program funds scholarships for RISD students and makes it possible for Scouts BSA and Girl Scouts to earn money for scouting activities. As an incentive to renew, we are offering the flags at a discount over the regular price with your membership.
The annual membership is $25, and for an extra $30 you will be enrolled in the flag program for your house five times a year. President’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day plus 9/11 Patriot’s Day, and Veteran’s Day. This is discounted from the normal $40 per year for the flag program alone.
Flags will be placed in the parkway on the Saturday prior to the holiday and remain until the following Saturday. More information.
Pay your dues online today here.
