Join Crime Watch Patrol Today!!! Our next Crime Watch Patrol class will be held in the evening on Tuesday, October 30th, 2018. Please submit your application today!! Read below for more information or take a look at our Crime Watch Patrol recruitment video at the following link https://youtu.be/Tk0NfJOUMuY Our 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. We supply City of Richardson 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 http://www.richardsonpolice.net/i-want-to/sign-up-for/crime-watch-patrol/cwp-application 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
