Mobile Watch

We have a neighborhood mobile watch program.  Here's how it works.

You and a friend (or spouse) pick a time to drive around the neighborhood in a car with doors locked and windows rolled up.  If you see anything amiss, you call the police on the cell phone that is provided you.  You never confront anyone, and never get out of the car.  It's safe, a lot of fun, a small time commitment, and it has reduced crime by 30% in neighborhoods that have implemented it!  You are also provided with a radar gun you can use to get the license plate numbers of speeding vehicles (the police will send them a letter of warning).  While you're out, stop by 7-11 because they have agreed to donate FREE drinks to all mobile watch volunteers!

WE NEED YOU!!!  Anyone over 18 can participate.  If you don't have a friend or spouse to patrol with, that's ok we still need you.  Students, renters, and owners are all welcome.  To become involved, please contact:
