It’s time for our annual membership drive. Your membership is voluntary, but your dollars help fund activities and projects in the neighborhood. Examples are the 4th of July Parade and Picnic, Spring Celebration, Yard of the Month, Support of Crime Watch Patrol and National Night Out.
Membership dues are $25 / year.
If you don’t have a booster sign, we will get you one with your paid membership.
We’ve tried to make renewing fast and easy with PayPal. PayPal is safe and it works well for us with our limited resources. There is no need to open a PayPal account, all you need is a credit or debit card. You may pay by check.
You may renew for one or two years.
More information here.

Read below for more information or take a look at our Crime Watch Patrol recruitment video.
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 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.
