Safer Crocker Highlands Needs You!
Private Patrol Service Reduces Crime in our Community!
Three years ago, neighbors in the Lakeshore Homes Association (LHA) territory banded together to form "Safer Crocker Highlands", a non-profit private patrol service with a goal of reducing crime in the neighborhood, financed by voluntary donations. While Safer Crocker is not part of LHA, we are happy for their support.
At the moment, we have 13 percent of our immediate neighbors participating. This number has been slipping due to neighbors moving away, and a lack of new sign-ups.
You may have seen the security patrols, doing variable 8 hours per day, 6 days a week. Most of the crime now occurring in the neighborhood is happening in the night hours, and our goal is to increase the number of patrol hours, especially at night.
Studies show that security patrols reduce crime and we are convinced that with a larger time coverage, we could make our neighborhood even safer.
There is a real need for more support for the patrols, to keep our current coverage and, hopefully, expand to more hours. The recommended donation is $30 a month, but any amount is appreciated.
If we can increase participation to 40 percent, we will be able to offer 24/7 coverage. Another benefit of the patrols is a vacation watch and late night escort.
